Abstract

The development of standard operating procedures (SOPs) in endoscope reprocessing is an oftneglected task with vital implications. At present, there is little to no organizational standardization or facilitation to aid SOP development. After critical analysis of several SOPs from various hospital organizations, recommendations are put forth focusing on the application of guidelines within human factors and instructional design. These recommendations are anticipated to encourage better procedural development, promote organizational standardization, and facilitate usability for the end users.
