Automated disinfection avoids disruption

Nanosonics UK Scottish sales and support Alastair Pittman with radiographer Ishbel Walker.

NHS Western Isles is one of the latest Scottish health boards to install a Nanosonics trophon EPR automated high level disinfection system for ultrasound probes.

NHS Western Isles acting radiology manager Jane MacDonald said: “Using wipes was time-consuming to decontaminate regular transvaginal probe use.  It caused disruption to heavy ultrasound worklists and the shortening of lists to accommodate examinations.

“For staff trophon is reliable.  Probes are always ready for use between patients, reducing examination times.  We also have auditable proof of decontamination and what’s more, trophon’s visibility to patients gives them confidence in the cleanliness of the examination procedure.”
