Heart+Sound Solutions Care and Cleaning Methods
- Use an alcohol pad in between patients to clean your stethoscope thoroughly. The way to break the infectious chain is to prevent cross contamination.
- NEVER soak your stethoscope in any kind of liquid. You can, however, use a cloth and antibacterial soap to clean your stethoscope. Dry your stethoscope completely before storing it away.
- Remember, wearing your stethoscope around your neck is treated as a badge of honor, but it does introduce it to bodily oils that will break down your scope over time.
