Let's Talk Case Carts | Clean Dirty Indicators

What is a Clean Dirty Indicator?

When contaminated items are transported in your case cart, the cart should be clearly labeled. Clean/dirty indicators are used to protect the sterile field and determine what the contents of the case cart are, sterile/unsterile, clean/dirty, used/unused. Is it ready for use or does it need to be decontaminated? This indicator helps prevent the accidental use of unsterile equipment.

Option A
A sliding indicator on the front of the case
cart with visible signage indicating the contents of the cart.
Option B
A clean/dirty indicator in a dial design that is mounted
to the back of the case cart.
