At Backs and Feet our hygiene procedure is checked after each treatment (hand washing, gloves, couch rolls).
Each and every patient is treated with a separate set of sealed sterilised tools which are opened in front of you.
Cleaning and sterilization of equipment is essential so we have invested in the latest technology which consists of (1) chemical cleaning with single use brushes, this is followed by (2) ultrasonic cleaning for approximately 10 minutes after which the instruments are vacuum packed with their own individual sterile pouches and are then (3) autoclaved for approximately 45 minutes.
Although the process takes about 2 to 3 hours each and every time this is 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.
