Cleaning is the first critical step in the sterilization of surgical instruments. You can clean without sterilizing, but you cannot sterilize without effective instrument cleaning. Staying compliant means elevated sterility assurance levels and standardized cleaning verification that drive best practices in surgical site infection prevention.
