1.3. Equipment considerations

  • As per generic advice. 
  • Set aside dedicated COVID-19 room / equipment / mobile / probe(s). 
  • After use with each COVID-19 patient, clean all equipment in line with the principles and advice on couch cleaning in the Appendix. Remove all probes from the unit except the ones needed for the examination when performing exams mobile or in the designated exam room in order to avoid the necessity of high-level disinfection in the event the patient coughs or sneezes within the designated distance.
