Care & Handling
Immediately after surgery, rinse instruments under warm running water to remove all blood, body fluids and
tissue. If not cleaned immediately after rinsing, instruments should be submerged in a solution of water and
neutral pH (7) detergent until they can be cleaned.
A. Ultrasonic Cleaning
Place instruments in open position into the ultrasonic cleaner. Make sure that instruments with sharp blades
(scissors, etc.) do not touch other instruments. All instruments must be fully submerged.
Do not place dissimilar metals (stainless, copper, chrome plated, etc.) in the same cleaning cycle.
Instruments should be processed in the cleaner for 5 to 10 minutes.
After ultrasonic cleaning, rinse instruments with water to remove ultrasonic cleaning solution.
B. Automatic Washer Sterilizers
Follow manufacturer’s recommendations. Be sure to lubricate instruments after last rinse cycle and before
C. Manual cleaning
Ultrasonic cleaning is the most effective way to clean surgical instruments, especially those with
hinges, locks and moving parts. If ultrasonic cleaning is not available, follow these steps:
I. Use stiff plastic cleaning brushes. Do not use steel wool or wire brushes.
II. Use only neutral pH (7) detergents. (Low pH detergents, if not rinsed off properly, will cause breakdown
of stainless protective surface and black staining. High pH detergents will cause surface deposit of brown
stain, which will also interfere with smooth operation of the instrument.)
III. Brush delicate instruments carefully and, if possible, handle them separately from general instruments.
IV. Make sure all instrument surfaces are visibly clean and free from stains and tissue.
Inspect each instrument for proper function and condition. Make sure that scissor blades glide smoothly
all the way (blades must not be loose when in closed position). Check that forceps tips are properly
aligned. Make sure that hemostats and needle holders do not show light between the jaws, that they lock
and unlock easily, and that the joints are not too loose. Check needle holder jaws for wear. Examine
cutting instruments and knives to be sure their blades are sharp and undamaged.
V. After scrubbing, rinse instruments thoroughly under running water. While rinsing, open and close
scissors, hemostats, needle holders and other hinged instruments to ensure that hinge areas are also
A. Lubricate all instruments which have any metal-to-metal action such as scissors, hemostats, needle holders,
self retaining retractors, etc. Surgical instrument lubricants should be used.
Do not use WD-40 oil or other industrial lubricants.
B. Instruments may be autoclaved individually or in sets.
Individual instrumen—tsDisposable paper or plastic pouches are ideal. Make sure you use a wide enough
pouch (4” or wider) for instruments with ratchet locks (such as needles holders and hemostats) so the
instrument can be sterilized in an open (unlocked) position.
Instrument Set—s Unlock all instruments and sterilize them in an open position. Place heavy instruments on
bottom of set (when two layers are required).
Never lock an instrument during autoclaving. This will prevent the steam from reaching and sterilizing the
metal-to-metal surfaces. Furthermore, heart expansion during autoclaving can cause cracks in hinge areas.
Do not overload the autoclave chamber, as this may also hinder steam penetration.
Place a towel on bottom of pan to absorb excess moisture during autoclaving.
Make sure the towels contain no detergent residue and are neutral pH(7) when immersed in water.
(Laundries frequently use inexpensive but high pH(9-13) detergents and do not properly rinse out or
neutralize those detergents in the final wash/rinse cycle. Also, sometimes bleaches are added and are not
CAUTION— At the end of the autoclave cycle (before the drying cycle) unlock autoclave door and
open it no more than a crack (about 3/4”). Then run dry cycle for the period recommended by the
autoclave manufacturer. If the autoclave door is opened fully before the drying cycle, cold room air will
rush into the chamber, causing condensation on the instruments. This will result in water stains on
instruments and also cause wet packs.
Most cold sterilization solutions require a 10-hour immersion to render instruments sterile, but this prolonged
chemical action may be more detrimental to surgical instruments than the 20-minute autoclave cycle. If the
instruments need only to be disinfected (basically clean), cold sterilization is acceptable since disinfection will
take place in only 10 minutes.
But to render the instruments sterile (with absolutely no living organism surviving), autoclaving is
For instruments with tungsten carbide inserts (needle holders, scissors, tissue forceps), do not use solutions
containing benzyl ammonium chloride which will destroy the tungsten carbide inserts.
If instruments are to be stored, let them air dry and store them in a clean and dry environment.
