At Hillier Road Dental & Implant Centre we prioritise our patient’s safety and quality of care above all else. As part of our commitment to ensure safety we make use of instrument barcode tracking.
Instrument barcode tracking is a computerised sterilisation tracking system that has been specifically designed to keep track of instrument sterilisation and the treatments the instruments were used for. The system is very similar to that used in hospital sterilisation environments and helps ensure that all instruments are properly sterilised as per the requirements prior to being used in treatment.
It allows us to track exactly when an item was given for sterilisation, where and when it was handled and used within a certain timeframe. This makes it very unlikely for a failure of dental instruments to be sterilised thus ensuring the safety of our patients.
