Articles-On-The-Go: Are Bigger Hospitals Safer? Not When it Comes to Surgical Instrument Reprocessing

Are bigger hospitals safer than smaller hospitals when it comes to surgical instrument reprocessing?  The answer may surprise you...

On this episode of Articles-On-The-Go, Hank examine this question and gives some insight into the industry as a whole.

"I would say that it is a shame how little patients actually know about the surgical instrument quality issues they may be walking into for their surgeries. But it's more than a shame. It's a damn shame, and there is nothing truly informed about their consent when patients don't know they may go under rusty knives and dirty scopes."
