It is interesting to me that no one is looking at the fact that hospitals are putting Pulmonary and GI services in the same procedural areas. Hospitals are reprocessing and even storing scopes in the same areas expecting safe results. This practice compromises the integrity of basic cleaning strategies.
David, Your point is well-taken. Often, bronchoscopes and GI endoscopes are reprocessed in the same sink or processing chamber. While this practice is consistent with the current standard of care, one is now compelled to ask whether it might require modification, especially if this practice were demonstrated to pose an increased risk of contaminating bronchoscopes with “CRE” and other bacteria indigenous to the GI tract.
