Eucomed asks: is device reuse really worth it?:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The costs of validating whether a medical device can safely be reprocessed and reused could be anything between $7,000 and $50,000, according to the European medical device industry association, EUCOMED. In a recent position paper, it argues that reprocessing creates many additional, often unforeseen, costs. These are normally related to stocking, storing, distribution and recording. But they may also arise because of patients needing treatment for infections resulting from reused devices, and even in compensation for medical negligence claims.
