Case Study King's College Hospital

King's College Hospital decontamination facility meets SSD standards

In a groundbreaking approach, King's College partnered with Getinge for a "one scope, one chamber" endoscope decontamination concept. The new decontamination unit, rated as "outstanding" by JAG authorities, provides a consistent and comprehensive end-to-end solution, from water treatment to scope decontamination. It offers higher capacity and validated storage conditions for scopes ready for distribution to individual endoscopy units, as well as a fully automated regimen for routine sanitization of endoscopes. Scantrack integration and Scopetech monitoring support the implementation of high SSD (Sterile Services Departments) standards, offering full tracking and traceability scope to patient.
