Endoscope reprocessing is a multi-step process demanding meticulous attention to detail. While it occurs away from the procedure room and the hustle and bustle of room turnovers, effective cleaning and disinfection of endoscopes is an integral part of a GI procedure. Avoiding transmission of infectious agents demands strict adherence to published reprocessing guidelines, particularly as endoscopic units become busier and the number of procedures performed nationwide increases.
