The risk of contaminationInfection control is a top concern in GI units.The European Society of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Nurses andAssociates states that water bottles can be a source of endoscopecontamination.1Possible contaminants that may linger in reusable accessories include virusesfungal sporesbacteriaAdditional References - Industry StatementsEuropean Society of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Nurses andAssociates (ESGENA)In addition to the endoscopes themselves, water bottles can be a source of endoscope contamination.This can be caused by inadequate cleaning of water bottles, lack of sterilization or use of tap waterinstead of sterile water. Therefore, water bottles and connecting tubes must be cleaned and sterilizedon a daily basis. The water bottles should be filled with sterile water and changed after each endoscopysession. Additionally, testing of water bottles should be included in regular quality control.1American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE)Episodes of transmission of infection to patients can be traced, in most cases, to procedural errors incleaning and disinfection of the endoscope or its accessories. Bacteria or viruses have been transmittedby: contaminated water bottles and irrigating solutions 2Association of Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology(APIC) The water bottle and connecting tubes are difficult to clean and disinfect and are often colonized withPseudomonas species and may serve as important reservoirs of cross-infection.3123ESGE-ESGENA guideline: Cleaning and disinfection in gastrointestinal endoscopy.
