At Backs and Feet our hygiene procedure is checked after each treatment (hand washing, gloves, couch rolls).
Every patient is treated with a separate set of sealed sterilised tools opened in front of you.
Cleaning and sterilization of equipment is essential. We have invested in the latest technology this consists of (1) chemical cleaning with single use brushes, followed by (2) ultrasonic cleaning for approximately 10 minutes after which instruments are vacuum packed with individual sterile pouches and then (3) autoclaved for approximately 45 minutes.
Although the process takes about 2 hours each and every time its the only way to ensure our patients receive the best possible hygienic treatment.
Any single use disposable instruments will go directly into special waste containers which are then collected as part of our clinical waste disposable process.
