SGNA recently revised a practice document focused on infection prevention. The revised Standards of Infection Prevention in Reprocessing of Flexible Gastrointestinal Endoscopes (2016) refines the statement about manual cleaning of endoscopes, and includes a detailed listing of practice areas where further research is needed. SGNA is committed to providing gastroenterology nursing professionals with resources based on current evidence, and evaluates and updates practice documents when new research is published or brought forward.
