The importance of traceability for HLD of ultrasound probes

Clinical Bulletins

Traceability is the process of linking reprocessing cycle information and medical device identifiers to a patient record.

Guidelines in the UK and Ireland require medical devices classified as semi-critical and critical to have full traceability to the patient.

In the event of an outbreak or infection prevention breach, a reliable traceability system becomes instrumental for a facility in investigating, identifying and notifying affected patients.
