The surgical instrument cleaning recommendations of the manufacturers of surgical instruments include the use of neutral pH enzymatic detergents. Neutral pH enzymatic detergents are recommended for cleaning surgical instruments, utensils, and scopes. The decontamination of medical devices removes excess body fluids and tissue from medical devices with a disposable, non-shedding wipe. Before cleaning surgical instruments, they should be placed in a basin of distilled water or a tray covered with damp towels. Do not allow saline, blood, body fluids, tissue, bone fragments, or other organic debris to dry on instruments before cleaning. 

Soaking in enzyme detergent prewash soaking solutions facilitates faster surgical instrument cleaning, especially for instruments with complex features and hard-to-reach areas, such as medical devices with cannulated or tubular designs. 

Enzymatic detergent cleaning solutions break down protein matter and prevent blood and protein-based materials from drying on surgical instruments. The manufacturer’s instructions for the preparation and use of enzymatic detergent cleaning solutions should be explicitly followed. 

Instruments should be cleaned within 30 minutes of use to minimize the potential for drying before cleaning surgical instruments before sterilization. Used surgical instruments must be transported to the central supply in closed or covered containers to prevent unnecessary contamination of the medical devices. The preparation of neutral pH enzymatic detergent cleaning agents with low foaming surfactants is preferred and recommended by surgical instrument manufacturers such as Zimmer. Alkaline agents with pH of 12 or less may be used in countries where they are required by law or local ordinance. Alkaline agents should be followed with a neutralizer and thorough rinsing. 

Enzymatic detergent surgical cleaning solutions should be prepared and used at the dilution rates and temperatures recommended by the manufacturer. The optimal temperature for enzymatic surgical instrument cleaning performance peaks at 137 degrees F, 58.33 degrees C. The cleaning performance of enzymatic surgical instrument cleaners does not stop at this temperature but is less effective at lower and higher temperatures. 

Softened tap water may be used to prepare enzymatic detergent cleaning solutions. The use of the recommended temperatures is important to achieve the optimal cleaning outcomes available from the cleaning solutions. 

Dry powdered surgical instrument cleaning agents should be completely dissolved before use to avoid staining or corrosion of instruments. Fresh enzymatic detergent cleaning solutions should be prepared when existing solutions become grossly contaminated (bloody and/or turbid). 

Completely submerge surgical instruments in enzyme detergent cleaning solution and allow them to soak for 20 minutes. Use a soft-bristled, nylon brush to gently scrub the device until all visible soil has been removed. Particular attention must be given to crevices, lumens, mated surfaces, connectors, and other hard-to-clean areas. Lumens should be cleaned with a long, narrow, soft-bristled brush (i.e. pipe cleaner brush). Remove the device from the enzyme detergent cleaning solution and rinse in tap water for a minimum of 3 minutes. Thoroughly and aggressively flush lumens, holes, and difficult-to-reach areas. Place prepared cleaning agents in a surgical instrument ultrasonic cleaning device. Completely submerge the medical devices in the enzymatic detergent cleaning solution and apply ultrasonic cleaning for 10 minutes, or more, at 45-50kHz. Rinse the surgical instruments in purified water for at least 3 minutes or until there is no sign of blood or soil on the device or in the rinse stream. Thoroughly and aggressively flush lumens, holes, and other difficult-to-reach areas. 

Repeat the ultrasonic surgical instrument cleaning process, using the enzymatic detergent cleaning solution at the recommended temperatures and then using the thorough rinse steps outlined above. Remove excess moisture from the surgical instruments using a clean, absorbent non-shedding wipe. If the stainless steel of the surgical instruments is stained or corroded, using an anti-corrosion agent in an ultrasonic surgical instrument cleaner with an enzymatic detergent lubricating cleaning solution may be sufficient to remove surface deposits. Care must be taken to thoroughly rinse cleaning chemicals from the devices. Acidic, anti-corrosion agents should only be used on an as-needed basis. The use of a high-quality enzymatic detergent surgical instrument cleaning product, such as the ONE cleaner, will remove stains rapidly.

Completely submerge the instruments in enzyme detergent cleaning solution and allow them to soak for 10 minutes. Use a soft nylon-bristled brush to gently scrub the device until all visible soil has been removed. Particular attention must be given to crevices, lumens, mated surfaces, connectors and hard-to-clean areas. Lumens should be cleaned with a long, narrow, soft nylon-bristled brush (i.e. pipe cleaner). Using a ultrasonic surgical instrument cleaner at 45-50kHz will aid in thoroughly cleaning the devices. The use of a syringe or water jet will improve the flushing of difficult-to-reach areas and serrated surfaces. 

Enzyme detergent surgical instrument cleaning agents with low foaming surfactants should be used during manual surgical instrument cleaning procedures to ensure that instruments are visible in the cleaning solution. Manual scrubbing with brushes should always be performed with the instrument below the surface of the enzymatic detergent cleaning solution to prevent the formation of aerosols and splashing that may spread contaminants. Cleaning enzymatic detergent cleaning chemicals must be thoroughly rinsed from the device surfaces to prevent the accumulation of any enzymatic detergent residue. 

Do not place heavy surgical instruments on top of delicate devices. Do not allow contaminated medical devices to become dry before reprocessing them. All subsequent surgical instrument cleaning and sterilization steps are facilitated by not allowing blood, body fluid, bone and tissue debris, saline, or disinfectants to dry on used surgical instruments. Saline and surgical instrument cleaning or disinfection agents containing aldehyde, mercury, active chlorine, chloride, bromine, bromide, and iodine or iodide are highly corrosive and should not be used. Used surgical Instruments must not be placed in or soaked in Ringers Solution. Mineral oil or silicone lubricants should not be used because they coat microorganisms and prevent direct contact with medical device surfaces with the enzymatic detergent cleaning chemicals and the steam used for terminal sterilization. The ONE cleaner Enzymatic Detergent Surgical Instrument Cleaner delivers the recommended water-soluble lubricants during every reprocessing cycle.

Soaking in disinfectants may be a necessary step to control certain viruses. However, these agents may discolor or corrode instruments. Bleach contains or forms chlorine and chloride solution and have a corrosive effect similar to saline. Disinfectants containing glutaraldehyde, or other aldehydes, may denature protein-based contaminants, causing them to harden and making them more difficult to remove. 

When possible, soaking medical devices in a disinfectant should be avoided. 

Remove excess body fluids and tissue from instruments with a disposable, non-shedding wipe. Place the surgical instruments in a basin of distilled water or a tray covered with damp towels. Do not allow saline, blood, body fluids, tissue, bone fragments, or other organic debris to dry on the surgical instruments before surgical instrument decontamination and cleaning. 

Soaking in proteolytic enzymatic detergent solutions facilitates cleaning, especially in instruments with complex features and hard-to-reach areas such as medical devices with cannulated and tubular features. The use of hard water should be avoided. Softened tap water may be used for initial rinsing. Purified water should be used for final rinsing to eliminate mineral deposits on the surgical instrument's stainless steel. One or more of the following processes may be used to purify water: ultra-filter (UF), reverse osmosis (RO), deionized (DI), or equivalent.
