In the Healthcare Purchasing News story, Bundle Up for Better Patient Care, medical devices bundles are discussed including reprocessing:

“Replacing reusable devices with single-use devices (SUDs) is one solution that helps offer confidence that every device will be ready for patient use,” continued Broeske. “Some health systems hesitate to make the swap because of the perceived cost and waste increase. However, it can cost a health system roughly $20,000 to treat a single HAI.4 Stryker’s Sustainability Solutions Save Simply ECG leads are an SUD designed to decrease the infection-prevention concern associated with reusable ECG leads, helping health systems save the potential cost of treating one HAI. In addition, the Save Simply ECG leads seamlessly integrate with a third-party reprocessing solution that can further drive cost control and environmental-waste reduction.”
