The level of cleaning and disinfecting required for your Clarius Ultrasound Scanner is based on the Spaulding Classification system. Each Spaulding classification mandates a specific level of cleaning and disinfecting of the equipment before it can be used in the next exam. Following the correct classification will help reduce cross contamination and infection.
Determine the Spaulding Classification based on your scanner's usage:
|Non-Critical Class||Touches intact skin||Cleaning followed by intermediate disinfection|
|Semi-Critical Class||Touches mucous membranes and non-intact skin||Cleaning followed by high level disinfection (HLD)|
