Oh, for heaven's sake . . . even at $10,000 - $20,000 per endoscope ... why not have enough scopes to allow for an appropriate amount of time to sanitize them between patients. A few procedures would pay for each new scope and then this time crunch wouldn't be an issue. Sounds too simple.
I never realized I had to worry about
where a scope had been before it goes down my throat or in the back door. Pretty sad.
