    We’ve just moved over in Wales to new Clinell wipes (green packet and red packets) for cleaning devices and been told that they have a lot (excess) fluid in them and this may cause ingress problems and damage to devices, not to mention cracking the plastics…… any other feedback would be appreciated.

    This is too true. The problem increases, also the further down the tube, where the wipes get more damp.

    There is a challenge with the cleaning instruction for more devices than we are probably aware of. Just looking at two in particular, and only pulling aspects of the instructions ~

    Lifepack Defibrillator states ~ Apply or sprat the recommended liquid cleaning agent to a soft cloth. Do not use clothes soaks with cleaning agents. After cleaning re-wipe the device with a cloth dampened with clear water. Do not use disposable disinfectant wipes, as they likely contain harmful additives ~ Do areas realistically do this????

    Alaris Syringe Driver ~ Do not use the following, then there is then a list. On the list is Benzalkonium Chloride. Unfortunately Clinell Universal Sanitising Wipes have Benzalkonium Chloride as part of its mixture. ~ We use Clinell Wipes!!!

    Lots to think about. There is probably not one individual cleaning agent that could be used for all devices, but Trust probably tend to treat all devices relatively the same when it comes to cleaning them. Yes there will always be specific items in specific areas, but generally for Ward areas they will use the same cleaning agent / wipe for all equipment
