Audience: Hospital Administrators and Hospital Risk Managers
The FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health has sent a letter to all U.S. hospitals reminding them about its intention to enforce certain requirements regarding the reprocessing of single-use medical devices (SUDs) for later use on patients. The letter provides a timetable and specifies actions that may be taken against hospitals that do not comply.
