Brazilian "bedside dialysis" services alerted of non-reuse obligations

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Brazilian hospitals have been reminded of the ban in place on reusing single-use devices, in guidance on standards for mobile, so-called "bedside dialysis" services. A technical note issued by healthcare regulatory agency Anvisa lists needles, blood lines, pressure isolators and "other disposable products" as being non-reusable. It also notes the general requirement that these services provide an "integral level of care". The guidance is intended as filling a gap in the regulation of dialysis care standards, whereas "traditional" hospital dialysis is covered by Resolution RDC 154 of 2004, Anvisa explained.
