Inflation is high. The GDP has shrunk. But the job market has never been better. The Washington Post's Damian Paletta helps make sense of the U.S. economy today.
Hospitals and clinics commonly use medical devices in surgeries and other procedures, then sterilize them and use them again. But some also reuse devices that are labeled for single use only. Some experts say most devices labeled for single use are truly safe for multiple uses and that medical facilities would literally go broke if they always used new equipment. But others say reprocessing some devices puts patients at risk for infection or injury and isn’t ethical. Join Diane and guests for a discussion on the manufacture and use of medical devices in the U.S.
