ABSTRACT
Objective: to identify how the processing of dental-medical-hospital materials in basic health units is carried out. Method: descriptive study, observational study, carried out in 25 basic health units (BHU) between August and September of 2011, through observation of sterilization processes, guided by a semi-structured script, after approval of the research project by the Committee on Research Ethics, conforming to concept No 120/2011. Results: the quality of the sterilization process is undermined by failures in the choice of enclosures for the types of sterilization practiced, by the absence of monitoring and records in different phases of this process. The physical, chemical and biological tests were not used concomitantly. Conclusion: security and validation of the sterilization process in BHU are compromised, requiring rapid intervention. Strategies such as the deployment of guidelines and continuing education can help in the suitability of the sterilization process.
