OutpatientSurgery.net reports: SUD Reprocessing Helps Environment, Bottom Line:

Don’t let misconceptions about single-use device reprocessing stop you from considering a process that reduces healthcare waste, benefits the environment and saves facilities thousands of dollars, implores a commentary appearing in the March issue of the journal Academic Medicine.

The article quotes surgeon Martin Makary, MD, MPH from Johns Hopkins University about his article in Academic Science:
