Cross Infection Control
Storage of sterilised items

Dentaljuce’s excellent module on Cross Infection Control in Dentistry is written in straightforward language for the whole dental team, and covers all you could want to know about this increasingly important core verifiable CPD topic for dentists and dental nurses. If you haven’t subscribed to dentaljuce yet, why not join us now at this amazingly low price !

 Correct storage of sterilised items is essential if they are not to become recontaminated while waiting to be used. 

This page discusses where the bugs that do this come from, and the new UK government rules about how and where to store sterile items, and how long they can be stored before they must be re-sterilised.
