  1. Dispose of disposables ?

    Article - En anglais

    We investigated the implications of a change from disposable to regular crockery and cutlery, and the installation of a dishwasher on a 12-bedded-infectious diseases ward.

    A limited microbiological study of used disposable cutlery revealed contamination by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus of one utensil out of 12.

    Changing to conventional utensils could be recommended if a dishwasher meeting DHSS requirements was installed and safe working practices introduced.
