We’re back with another episode of In the Sterilization Room with Jackie. In this episode, infection control and prevention expert Jackie Dorst, RDH, BS, focuses on handpiece sterilization. Specifically, she talks about CDC guidance and the importance of MIFUs—or “manufacturer’s instructions for use.” She explains why you need to have the MIFUs for every device in your practice readily available and why you shouldn’t assume you are sterilizing a device correctly just because it’s “the way we’ve always done it.” Dorst also walks us through the CDC’s recommendations on sterile packaging.
Dorst also addresses the latest warning from the FDA about counterfeit N95 on the market. OP
