1. Are your Scopes Safe?

    Are your Scopes Safe?

    More and more cases of infection risk have been arising frequently.  When a scope is received from a clinic and the repairs are declined, and they opt out for a cheaper repair, it is very concerning.  What happens when you have to have your EGD or colonoscopy done?  Becuase of infection control and new regulations, we will not repair a scope unless it is approved to be fully patient ready.  Sure, we may miss out on money, but a life is irreplaceble.  Pre cleaning immediately after your procedure and handling of the endosope are two major steps that are not covered enough.  These will keep your endoscopes safe from damages, and keep the lumens from building up and leaving you with a safe and ready to use endoscope.  If you have any questions on cleaning or the proper techniques, please feel free to call: 929-352-3636
