According to the Joint Commission, issues in hospitals that have contributed to non-compliance with IC.02.02.01 (Preventing Hospital Acquired Infections) include lack of staff training and competence assessment.
The ASTRA automated probe disinfection system helps makes achieving compliance simple. Training your facility’s clinicians to use the ASTRA in effectively cleaning your ultrasound probes is now even easier.
