The hazards connected with these conditions could almost be eradicated. If medical professionals switched to devices designed for single use that are sterile. However, reusable medical devices come with their own set of inherent risks associated with their upkeep, storage, and repeated utilization. All of which are frequently amplified by the processes of reprocessing and sterilization.
