Q. Operatory Preparation in sterilization process?

1. The circulator (non-sterile assistant) should begin to prepare the operatory while the sterile assistant scrubs. If there is only one assistant, the operatory should be prepared prior to the scrub.

2. All walls should be wiped down with an antiseptic from 48 inches to the floor. The floor should also be cleaned. If the operatory is exclusive, this can be done the evening before the procedure.

3. The circulator does the following preparation:

  • Open the pack away from the body, being careful to only touch the outer edges and place on a table. Do not touch the sterile contents of the pack or lean over the pack.
  • Remember? the circulator should stay at least 12 inches from the sterile field at all times and must not reach across the sterile field for any reason.
  • Carefully add the sterile gloves to the pack by peeling open the pack, again away from the body, and dropping them onto the sterile field.
  • A regular table or tray should be set up for non-sterile items.

4. The sterile assistant enters the operatory with wet hands after performing the scrub. Using a sterile towel from the opened pack dry hands from the fingertips to the elbow. Reverse towel for the second hand and arm.

5. The sterile assistant grasps and unfolds the gown from the pack and steps into it with both arms simultaneously, leaving hands within the sleeve. Don't go past the cuff. Remember, your hands are disinfected, not sterile.
