The healthcare sector faces the problem of equipment contamination, and the situation has become a real issue in the contemporary setting. The healthcare personnel have to follow all the procedures that are provided from the department to keep all the patients safe. The goal of this experiment to make a standard procedure to clean the equipment, since there are no standards among hospitals. Many hospital pieces of equipment still remain contaminated with microorganisms. Since the instruments are shared among different patients with different health conditions, there is a high probability of transmission of nosocomial infections and other hospital-acquired diseases. Meanwhile, the system aspires to provide quality healthcare and the most affordable costs. This study will compare cleaning protocols for equipment used in the radiation therapy department. One way the healthcare system has responded to the problem of possible contamination is by using water to clean the equipment, which has made the situation worse since most of the patients are visiting this department are immunosuppressed, and the bacteria would not be decontaminated. Therefore, they are still facing the challenge of possible contamination and pathogen transfer through equipment. In this experiment, some selective bacteria will be inoculated onto the bite block. Survival of bacteria after cleaning with deionized water and hydrogen peroxide will be compared.
