An interesting article was posted in the Chattanoogan web site about the truth about ‘Pedicure‘.  The only common I have to make in regards to the paragraph of autoclaving implements, is that the implements needs to be put into an Ultrasonic Cleaners, then put into a bag (Bags), and then put into the autoclave.  Also, monitoring the autoclave is important.  We recommend.  How elese would you know if the autoclave is working or not?

Call me if you have any further questions.

p.s. this is the paragraph in the article I was referring to:

Is it clean?

Sanitation is, first and foremost, the most important thing to look for in your salon. Do you see tools being used that have obviously been used on someone else? Do you see the pedicure chairs being washed, rinsed and cleaned with a product that will kill viral, bacterial and fungal pathogens between each client? Do you see thick filings and clippings from other clients lying on tables, floors or pedicure chairs? Please do not have services here. If your salon is touting  “sterile” implements which have been autoclaved, that does not necessarily mean the salon is clean. Autoclaving instruments really does nothing in a non-sterile field. Some salons throw instruments right into the autoclave without even cleaning them first with soap and water, and the autoclave is improperly maintained. If you see nail dust covering floors and/or work surfaces, you are being exposed to anything the prior clients might be carrying. Find yourself a clean and well maintained salon, with or without an autoclave, as long as the instruments used are being correctly sanitized or they are being disposed of after each client. And don’t be afraid to ask.  A true professional is proud of their sanitation methods and is happy to show you the lengths to which they go to protect you.

A dentist license recently temporarily was suspended because he allegedly did no disinfect surgical instruments in his office.  Also, no evidence that the office was sending out for spore testing which is against CDC recommendation of weekly testing the autoclave.

The easiest and least expensive way to spore test, is to to this …Click To Purchase, you get the result at the end of the cycle.  No need to mail it out, immediate feedback.

A Canadian hospital  was not able to sterilize their instruments due to rust-colored stains found surrounding the surgical tools they were using. It was detected that the steam which was generated by two huge boilers (which they heat hospital and provide heat for the sterilizers) were the cause.

A few factors could have caused staining:

1) The autoclave’s steam trap, which collects excess steam, failed, which sent moisture into the sterilizer.
2) Ironically, laundry detergent is a culprit. The surgical tools are wrapped in clean linen; if the detergent hasn’t been 100-per-cent rinsed, it can cause a teatype stain when subjected to the temperatures and pressure in the autoclave.
3) The boiler’s chemicals, designed to prevent corrosion, can carry over into the steam and cause staining.

With 16 percent of both phones and hands sampled containing E. coli, researchers say a lack of hand-washing, or a bad job doing it–is to blame.

“A UK-wide study of mobile phones planned to coincide with Global Handwashing Day, found that one in six carries fecal matter, probably because their owners are not washing their hands with soap after using the toilet. Researchers said some of the phones were contaminated with E. coli, fecal bacteria that can cause stomach upsets and serious food poisoning such as in the fatal O157 outbreak in Germany in June 2011″ (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com)

Bacteria all over 

 

Our phones are filthy and it’s not hard to see why.

Lets face it, we are always touching dirty things. The problem is, we are also always touching our phones, transferring that bacteria to our devices! We wash our hands, but never clean our phones! Have you ever used your phone in the bathroom? (Don’t worry, we all have.) Then it shouldn’t surprise you that 1 in 6 cell phones have fecal matter on them!

Have you even used a paper towel to open the door of a public restroom? Or tried to squeeze out without touching the handle after someone else opens the door? Do you use your foot to flush the toilet? Of course, because those things are loaded with germs!

Did you know that your cell phone has 18x more harmful bacteria than that handle in a public restroom we all try to avoid? If you have ever used your phone after leaving the bathroom, you made them dirtier than you did in the bathroom.
