Unsure whether disposable or reusable surgical prep razors are appropriate for your private practice or workplace first aid kit? No worries. To help you make a more informed decision, we've provided some key information about skin prep razors below:
One of the most important factors in deciding which surgical prep razor to use is whether or not the medical instruments can be effectively sterilized after each use. This is especially crucial in hospitals and surgical clinics as it prevents the spread of bacteria, but if done incorrectly, it can lead to dangerous infections and cross-contamination.
Medical instruments like surgical razors have hidden crevices that can harbor bacteria out of sight, necessitating extra caution when sterilizing the tool. Once a skin prep razor has come into contact with blood or body fluids, it should always be cleaned with a brush and soaked in an enzyme cleaner to fully sanitize the instrument, since a standard disinfection solution will not be sufficient.
Professional healthcare workers can use both reusable and disposable skin prep razors as most hospitals are equipped to manage the sterilization process. For first aid and EMTs, disposable prep razors are recommended as these items sometimes come into contact with broken or bleeding skin and cannot always be sanitized in a timely manner.
