MATRIX WIPES – How to clean an ultrasound probe using Matrix Wipes

Medical Imaging and Ultrasound departments plays a crucial role in any hospital or medical centre. Not only do they conduct important imaging work, they also are on the front line of infection prevention. With patients going in and out all day, and with the same equipment being used on multiple people, there’s a serious risk of spreading dangerous bacteria and viruses. 

Probes and other equipment which have come into contact with people should be thoroughly cleaned after every use.

According to the Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare “It is good practice for shared clinical equipment to be cleaned with a detergent solution between patient uses, and disinfected where indicated,”.

The good news is that the transmission of infection can be prevented. To achieve this there is a need to commit to robust Infection Prevention procedures. This includes effective surface cleaning and disinfection, particularly of high-touch areas within the practice and treatment rooms. It also requires excellent hand hygiene, achievable by ensuring that hand sanitisers are easily accessible for patients in waiting rooms and staff in practice rooms.
