How should radiography tables be cleaned and disinfected before use by patients?

Cleaning and disinfecting radiography tables before use by patients is crucial to prevent the spread of infections and ensure a safe healthcare environment. The following steps are typically followed:

1. Preparation: Remove any visible debris or spills from the table surface using disposable wipes or damp cloths.

2. Cleaning: Use a hospital-grade disinfectant cleaner approved for use on medical surfaces. Apply the cleaner to the entire surface of the table, including edges and corners, following the manufacturer’s instructions for proper dilution and contact time. Scrub the surface thoroughly to remove any contaminants.

3. Disinfection: After cleaning, apply a disinfectant solution to the table surface. Ensure complete coverage and allow the disinfectant to remain in contact with the surface for the specified contact time, typically around 5-10 minutes.

4. Rinsing (if necessary): Some disinfectants require rinsing after application. If so, use clean water to thoroughly rinse the table surface and remove any residue from the disinfectant.

5. Drying: Allow the table surface to air dry completely before patient use to ensure the effectiveness of the disinfection process.

6. Documentation: Record the cleaning and disinfection process according to facility protocols, including the date, time, and personnel responsible for the task.
