Onlysingle-usesurgical equipment is appropriate for use with patients who have communicable bloodborne diseases. Reusable equipment must be stored with inventory control numbers so it can be removed from use if it is found to be associated with infections that appear after the procedure. Physicians also need to establish protocols for handling reusable instruments during sterilization and restorage.
Insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid reimbursement policies can be the deciding factor in choosing between reusable equipment and equipment for one-time use. Reusable equipment is never reimbursed by the patient's health insurance coverage. Single-use equipment sometimes is reimbursed.
Assistants spend 5 to 10 minutes sending used instruments through sterilization, 8 to 15 minutes allowing instruments to dry, and 2 or 3 minutes to note inventory control numbers in patient records and on instrument containers. Half an hour of your assistant's time can cost more than the instrument they sterilize. However, when you have a light patient load, using your assistant's time in this way can make sense. Never put instruments from multiple patients into the autoclave at the same time. You want to avoid cross-contamination, especially if there is any possibility of contamination that cannot be removed by cleaning with steam and bleach.
Last-mile shipping of small packages is a huge burden on the environment. There is no doubt that multiple-use instruments are more "green," but the environmental costs of one sick patient easily exceed the environmental burden of shipping thousands of surgical instruments.
Every physician has slightly different circumstances. Patient load, availability of surgical assistants, and scheduling constraints may mean that the best choice is to stock both single-use and multiple-use surgical instruments to be used as circumstances dictate.
