Preliminary study for a Germany-wide benchmarking of reprocessing units for medical devices

In cooperation with the “Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sterilgutversorgung “(DGSV e.V.) and the Chair of Medical Engineering, initial investigations into a Germany-wide benchmark for the reprocessing of medical devices were carried out in a preliminary project. The aim of the work is to allow individual reprocessing units to compare their own performance with other facilities for the first time. In the medium term, this is intended to reduce the risk of nosocomial infections nationwide by enabling and facilitating process optimization, improve the supply of sterile instruments and protect and support on reprocessing staff.
