disinfecting instruments


I have a question regarding disinfecting of instruments ( i.e., scalpel
handles, scissors, forceps etc.) after completion of an autopsy and at the
end of the day in the grossing room.

Currently we clean all instruments with an enzyme detergent ( LPHse) and
them soak for 10 min. with a disinfectant (Virex).

Our new safety officer feels we should send all instruments to CS for
sterilization.  What is your practice and what are your thoughts?

Any info is appreciated.
