A very obvious and inevitable by-product of the healthcare industry is biomedical waste and there is no two ways around this. Any and all materials that have been contaminated with any sort of bodily fluid must be treated as biomedical waste. The improper management of these wastes can lead to contamination and infection. Most people abstain from disposable products as they genuinely believe that single-use devices are a waste of money. But the truth remains that re-usables end up being more expensive in the long run as a result of several hidden costs that go unnoticed. Not to mention even if you follow the manufacturer’s instructions to the dot, one cannot with cent percent confidence claim complete disinfection. Reusable instruments also require thorough decontamination processes which would require large amounts of water, disinfectants, detergents, specialized brushes, steam and electricity to process them for re-use. As a result, more and more healthcare professionals are switching from re-usables to medical disposables , probe covers and this trend is only increasing.
