When you go to unwrap a wound care product, the packaging will often say that it is sterile and ready for use. But do you ever wonder how it got that way? The manufacturing process for sterile wound care products is strategic and done so with care to ensure each product is safe for the treatment of wounds and other injuries.
First and foremost, to ensure products remain sterile, a clean manufacturing facility is necessary. Not only does the space in which the products are being made need to be clean, the areas surrounding it need to be also to limit the particulate and microbial contamination in the main manufacturing area.
Control strategies are often implemented when manufacturing wound care products to help define risk control measures and quality risk management (QRM). This allows the manufacturing facility to control product quality, efficacy and patient safety, all of which can be compromised by microbiological, chemical and other contaminants.
Those who are responsible for working within the manufacturing facility must take extra precaution when working with these products, as their purpose is to treat open wounds and other injuries that are more prone to infection. By following protocol and wearing the proper personal protective equipment (PPE), they minimize the risk of decontamination.
Wound care products are typically sold in bulk and each product is packaged separately. This is to ensure that for each and every use, the product is sanitary and can provide the healthcare professional with a safe, reliable product to treat their patient. Packaging wound care products separately also helps reduce the amount of product wasted which can cut down on costs and help the environment.
