DISPOSABLE AND SINGLE-USE
WHY USE DISPOSABLE PRODUCTS?
REASONS TO SWITCH TO DISPOSABLE PRODUCTS
Healthcare facilities and personnel face the question daily as to whether to use reusable or disposable medical products. Both sides have their pros and cons that force many the healthcare facilities into a hard decision making process. What makes one better than the other? There really isn't a better choice overall - it depends on the circumstances and situations present. A huge step in the decision making process is to recognize the level of infection control required for the safety of the medical device. A huge benefit of using single-use supplies is sterility is most easily, consistently and reliably achieved in medical devices this type of equipment rather than the reusable equipment.

BENEFITS OF SINGLE-USE PRODUCTS
Using single-use and disposable products relieve medical personnel of properly cleaning, disinfecting and sterilizing instruments through extensive reprocessing cycles. Disposable products arrive at the hospital ready for immediate use. Since they are single-use hospitals don't have to spend the time on going through the sterilization process of reusable products. Ultimately, single-use devices can significantly increase the facility’s efficiency.
Disposable products are cheaper in the long haul. Reusable products have the hidden cost of sterilization and proper cleaning so they can be reused. Reusable instruments need to be maintained for optimal surgical performance. Disposable products come ready to use with no time needed to be spent on getting the supplies ready to use. Essentially, disposable supplies provide the same quality as reusable devices without the cost of upkeep.
Cut Down on Costs
The use of disposable medical products ensure a contamination free area. There is no risk of Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) occurring as the single-use products come sterilized and ready for use. After use they are simply disposed of dramatically decreasing the chance of spreading bacteria, infections, and diseases. The ready-to-use, disposable devices can reduce surgeon and health care personnel concerns over the cleanliness of their surgical tools.
After a reusable product is cleaned, sterilized, and put into storage there is no way of properly being able to trace the cleanliness of the supply. Disposable, single use medical supplies ensure the ability to account for all inventory and full traceability. The product number and lot number directly links back to the medical manufacturing plant to prevent inconsistencies and issues.
When instruments and medical supplies are used once and then disposed of there is no risk of cross-contamination between patients. Contaminated medical products and supplies spread infections, complicate the surgery recovery, and create other health issues. Decrease the chances of this happening by using single-use, disposable products. Manage the chances of infection and the mitigation of spreading of diseases
Disposable products are normally thought to have more waste than using reusable products. However, they can actually decrease the amount of waste in your healthcare facility. The energy, water, cleaners, steam, and electricity used to decontaminate and sterilize the products for reuse actually creates more waste and harm to the environment.
THE THREAT OF CROSS CONTAMINATION
The threat of cross-contamination of medical devices is very real. It is a growing concern affecting every healthcare facility across the globe. Decontamination and sterilization of reusable products require large amounts of water, detergents, chemical disinfectants, specialized cleaning equipment, steam production, and electricity to reprocess medical devices for re-use. Even going through the all of this process there is still the risk for cross
contamination. Using disposables supplies eliminates the threat, and removes the risk of human error when cleaning, ensuring a safer work environment. As the years have gone by there has been an increasing shit in the medical world towards using disposable products. Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are a genuine threat to patients and can be very costly to hospitals and clinics in more ways than just exposure to insurance claims.
