A Doctor’s Guide to a Sterile Work Environment

If you’re like most people, you’re probably wondering how to create a sterile working environment without having to spend a fortune on expensive medical supplies. However, you should first look into bio-safety cabinet testing. The next thing that you should do is realize that if you are a doctor, it’s absolutely essential to keep your work areas as sterile as possible. The only way that you can do this is by making sure that every surface in your surgical lab or surgical room is clean. This includes the floor, the walls, the table, etc…

No Touching Allowed

Now, if you’re like most medical professionals and you have a large medical office, then you know how to create a sterile working environment by making sure that you never allow a person to touch any of the surfaces in your office. This means that you should require everyone that works in your office to wear white. No other color will do. This also means that you should only allow those who are authorized to enter the surgical area to wear white clothing, and that those who are not authorized shouldn’t be allowed in the room at all. 

The Importance of Paper

The last thing that you need to know about creating a sterile working environment in an operating room is that you should always have paper products in your surgical suite. Why? Because these products, whether they’re disposable or otherwise, are often the cause of cross-contamination. Cross-contamination occurs when one person’s blood comes into contact with someone else’s blood. It can even happen when the blood of the other person is held on a needle for too long. By having sterile products on hand, you’ll ensure that any potentially tainted blood is not held on the same needle or on the same table as another person’s blood.
