All OR linen is rigorously inspected over light tables. Products that need repair are tended to immediately. Those that have reached their life span are either disposed of or downgraded for alternate use.
Once they pass inspection, surgical linens are then folded to specification, and incorporated with other items to form surgical packs.
These surgical packs are placed on a stainless steel cart and sterilized. Sterile packs are not released unless they pass all three indicators: biological, chemical and mechanical.
