Well, at least this story makes it clear that the doctor thought that endocavity needle guides "could be reused after processing "with a high level disinfectant." I had wondered after the Dr. Kaplan story if they were being cleaned or disinfected in any way. Thanks for that small favor.
And I don't suppose it's quite as dangerous as the re-use of single-use syringes and vials referenced in the Dr. Desai case, though it's dangerous enough.
Nevertheless, it's still a ridiculously careless, perhaps criminal thing to do and certainly cause for some kind of censure. Let's hope our docs didn't engage in this kind of practice, though how does anyone really know?
