HealthLink’s EZ-KILL Disinfectant Wipes
Contamination is a process or act that causes materials or surfaces to be soiled with contaminating substances. Following the CDC guidelines for infection control can prevent or reduce the risk of disease transmission. To achieve effective infection control, proper procedures and protocols must be in place, surfaces, instruments, and equipment must be rigorously cleaned, disinfected or sterilized. Fortunately, the Organization for Safety, Asepsis and Prevention (OSAP) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provides guidelines and recommendations for dental professionals regarding the protocols that must be implemented in every practice. OSAP recommends classifying clinical surfaces into three categories: touch surfaces, transfer surfaces and splash, spatter, and droplet surfaces, which are primarily countertops. Pre-moistened disinfection wipes are preferred by most dental assistants for their fast easy access to maintain OSHA protocols. For the use on those hard surfaces where control of cross contamination is required.
