Manufacturing Process

The Manufacturing Process

The selection and use of quality surgical instruments are key components in providing safe, efficient and cost effective patient care in the operating room (OR). Quality instrument manufacturing involves standards for various aspects of the manufacturing process, including the basic requirements for the quality of stainless steel used, as well as quality control inspections used at every step in the process. Despite the existence of these standards, perioperative professionals are still confronted with surgical instruments of varying quality levels, depending on the individual quality standards of the instrument manufacturer. Therefore, it is important that members of the Sterile Processing and perioperative teams involved in the selection and use of surgical instrumentation understand the variations in instrument manufacturing processes, in order to provide the best possible instruments for patient care. This continuing education activity will provide a review of the key considerations in the quality manufacturing process for premier OR grade surgical instruments.

    LEARNER OBJECTIVES:

  • Identify key components of premier quality stainless steel used for manufacturing surgical instruments.
  • Define the stainless steel surgical instrument package labeling requirements
  • QA designated person performs the 4% inspection to assure product quality.
  • After that instruments are packed in pouches and ready to ship.

A brief overview of the historical evolution of surgical instruments will be presented. The key components of premier quality stainless steel used in the manufacture of surgical instruments will be discussed. The United States requirements for stainless steel surgical instrument package labeling will be outlined, including the definition of country of origin. The steps in the manufacturing process of high quality surgical instruments will be described in detail. The clinical considerations related to the selection and use of quality premier OR grade instruments, and the importance of the facility’s water quality in maintaining quality surgical instruments, will be presented.
