Chemical Vapor Exposure Risks
Hospital Sterile Processing departments work to protect patients by ensuring the sterilization of medical instruments used in lifesaving medical care. Throughout this process, sterile processing workers often use high concentrations of Peracetic Acid (PAA), Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2), and Ethylene Oxide (EtO) to ensure the proper disinfection and sterilization of the medical instruments. These toxic chemicals have established occupational exposure limits to protect the health and safety of these dedicated healthcare workers.
