Case Study Countess of Chester Hospital

Countess of Chester Hospital sets new standards with endoscope reprocessing suite

When the Countess of Chester Hospital's previous AER equipment started to fail, it was an opportunity to completely overhaul its approach to endoscope reprocessing. Starting from scratch and amalgamating other hospital sterile services, the project team came up with a plan that would set new standards for endoscope decontamination, work environment, and patient care.

Now, endoscope reprocessing has shifted from a tiny, overheated room to a large, light-filled suite that features a comprehensive solution from Getinge, including six dual-chamber ED-FLOW Automated Endoscope Reprocessors, the T-DOC tracking and traceability system, a variety of drying and storage cabinets, the Vac-a-Scope packaging system and a Reverse Osmosis (RO) water purification plant.
