This standard applies to automatic, general-purpose ethylene oxide (EO) sterilizers and EO sterilant sources that are intended for use in hospitals and other health care facilities.
NOTE-For purposes of this standard, "health care facilities" means hospitals, nursing homes, extended-care facilities, freestanding surgical centers, clinics, and medical and dental offices. For convenience, the term "hospital" is sometimes used in this recommended practice; in all instances, this term should be taken to encompass all other health care facilities.
