Do not dispose of reusable stethoscopes

We are beginning to run short of stethoscopes as reusable ones are being thrown away. Reusable stethoscopes can be cleaned and disinfected between patients. Use an EPA-registered disinfectant wipe, such as a Sani-Cloth, for this purpose. 

According to CDC’s Interim Infection Prevention and Control Recommendations for Patients with Suspected or Confirmed Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Healthcare Settings, non-dedicated, non-disposable medical equipment used for patient care should be cleaned and disinfected according to manufacturer instructions for use and facility policy. Routine cleaning and disinfection procedures are appropriate.
