Abstract
  • Reuse of single use equipment raises many issues, including legal and ethical ones. This report is the proceedings of a King's Fund conference. The following topics are covered: 1. General perspectives of the various groups involved; 2. Clinical issues; 3. Legal and ethical implications; 4. Technical issues; 5. Economic issues; 6. Reuse in the United States. The panel concluded that explicit written policies covering reuse were desirable, rather than leaving these decisions to individuals. DHAs should bear prime responsibility for producing these policies, but the DHSS should issue guidelines on drawing them up.
