Disinfecting Cisco Telepresence Remotes

Darren McKinnon

Is there an approved method from Cisco for disinfecting their remotes.  There isn't even anything in the VX Clinical Assistant guide.  My infection control staff want to us Virox wipes, or something equivalent.

I'm concerned about it wiping off the numbers/labels.

As long as it is not an abrasive or corrosive wipe or saturated with fluid then you should be OK. If this is something you will need to do regularly then you may want to consider putting the remote in a clear zip lock bag. Or having each user disinfect their hands before use. Otherwise you will not find an 'approved' method since that could open up someone to liability if it didn't work in all situations.

Hi Marius, and news on this?

Are there any kind of plastic covers / bags in which you could put the remote?

Thanks Russell and Martin.  We are already putting the remotes that patients touch into a clear plastic bag, but since Cisco has their telehealth endpoints, I thought they might have another suggestion.

Thanks again.
