As surgical instruments have become smaller and more specialized they have become more difficult to clean, exposing patients to severe infections and life threatening illnesses. The Center for Public Integrity recently investigated this problem and reported on “How Dirty Medical Devices Expose Patients to Infection”.
Experts have cited design flaws in certain reusable instruments that cause debris – often bone or tissue – to clog out of reach of cleaning brushes as a cause of this serious problem.
