Outpatient Surgery magazine recently highlighted the benefits of reprocessing single-use devices. “Success with reprocessing single-use devices” points out that reprocessing devices such as compression sleeves and pneumatic tourniquet cuffs is a great way to stretch your surgical supply budget. Not only do most reprocessed single-use devices cost about 50% of a new device, they offer savings on waste removal. The Magazine points out that in order for reprocessing to be successful, each OR should have its own designated recycling area with plenty of bins and eye-catching signs so that frontline staff can toss devices into the collection bins at the end of each case.
