Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide Sterilization Monitoring Policy and Procedures


  • VH2O2 Sterilization Monitoring Policies and Procedures

    Are you currently waiting to release steam loads until the biological indicator (BI) result is known, but not holding vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VH2O2) loads? These differences in release protocols can create confusion for sterile processing technicians which can create unnecessary risks. Technology now allows sterile processing departments to standardized their release protocols across vaporized hydrogen peroxide, steam, and ethylene oxide.


    Standardize vaporized hydrogen peroxide sterilization release protocols


    Complete the form below to access two sample policy and procedures for monitoring each cycle type and every load for VH2O2. Proper cleaning and decontamination, followed by sterilization with a BI in every load, provides the highest level of sterility assurance.


    See how you can implement this practice in your department.
