Event Description
It was reported that there was an issue with the locks; they were not changing color correctly after sterilization of the container. Prior to surgery, locks on an instrument set were noted as having turned to white instead of blue. There was a short delay (15 minutes) while sterilization cycles and monitoring records were checked to validate sterility. There was no patient harm. The central sterile processing (csp) staff confirmed that new locks were stored in a black bag to avoid light contamination. Additional information was not provided.
