As far as who is doing the cleaning, it could be the Peri-op team, Environmental Services (ES), a contracted outside cleaning agency, or any combination thereof.Very often due to the disparity of roles between surgeons, anaesthesia, nursing, techs and ES- each coming with their own perspective and agenda- it is safe to say that friction is often generated between the disciplines.
Another option is to mark the specific objects with a bioluminescence marker, allow for the cleaning, then check to see if the luminescence was removed using a black light.
This is repetitive and may lead to marked areas being targeted by ES workers.

Between cases the Peri-operative team will remove any known or suspected contaminations and clean and disinfect high use objects, returning it to a near zero deficit for sequential cases.
