This issue is critical to us, and there are many safety steps built in for your protection. Waverley Endoscopy follows the guidelines from the Gastroenterological Nurses College of Australia (GENCA), and from AS/NZ 4187 Reprocessing of reusable medical devices in health service organisations. Scopes are cleaned in special sterilising units, which run automatically, and a printout certifying correct disinfection is done for every scope. This is able to be tracked. These units are regularly serviced and tested. The scopes are tested 3 monthly with Melbourne Pathology for infection, and have never shown a sign of bacteria. Viruses are also eradicated by these methods. All staff have accredited competency in endoscope cleaning and disinfection. If you have further questions, our staff would be happy to answer them.
