Sanitation Process for Hearing Aids

Due to COVID-19, ReSound is taking extra precautions when handling product. All returned products received to our facility are sanitized using 70% Isopropyl Alcohol through our disinfection procedure. We have implemented additional cleaning processes for active workstations in the facility. All people entering/exiting production areas are sanitizing their hands when entering/exiting. We have nurses onsite to perform daily health checks for all employees. Employees are also required to wear masks in any situation where 6-feet social distancing is not feasible.

Sanitation Process for Hearing Aids In-Office

We recommend the following procedure to ensure that hearing aids are properly sanitized while you are updating or cleaning devices in-office.

  • Put on a pair of disposable nitrile gloves.
  • Wet a soft cloth with a 70-90% alcohol solution (isopropyl, Methyl or ethanol alcohol) with 10-30% purified water.
  • Clean the hearing aids thoroughly with the cloth until no debris is visible. Throw the cloth away.
  • Get a new cloth and wet it with the same alcohol solution. Gently clean the hearing aids again, for 60 seconds, making sure that all the surfaces are clean.
  • Do not submerge the hearing aids in the alcohol solution or any other fluid.
  • Throw away the cloth and gloves.
  • Place the hearing aids on a clean surface for a few minutes until completely dry.
