Endo Bag and Tag™ - Guidelines
Many professional organizations, hospitals, and endoscopy centres have developed guidelines to govern the transport and handling of flexible endoscopes.
Professional organizations in the U.S., including the Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) and the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (SGNA), have issued guidelines or recommended practices calling for the transport of endoscopes in a covered receptacle at all times. In Europe, ESGENA and the Joint Advisory Group (JAG) in the UK also has issued similar standards regarding the transport of endoscopes.
To address the many challenges associated with the handling of endoscopes, the Endo Bag and Tag™ System has been designed as a unique storage and transfer system that reduces the risk of cross contamination and offers easy visual identification of clean versus contaminated endoscopes. Benefits of the Endo Bag and Tag™ System include improved reprocessing safety and efficiency.
