Washing and sterilization service of drapes and gowns in R.T.T
The sterilization of textiles, which aims to eliminate any vital organ from a medical device through an automatic sequence of operational phases carried out in a sterilizer (so-called "sterilization cycle"). It concerns surgical interventions for the setting up of the operating field and the dressing of the medical team. Once used, the textiles are withdrawn, refurbished, subjected to the sterilization process and returned in sets to the operating rooms for re-use.
The sterilization takes place in specific buildings attached to the laundry production sites where the textiles, once refurbished, are packed in sets and subjected to the sterilization process. This process is made in accordance with the current regulations as well as those specifically related to the Medical Devices, thus ensuring the traceability of the process/product through the use of special information systems and the application of barcodes or technological systems that allow to identify the devices automatically.
