Medical Products

Medical products, such as devices, drugs, and biologics, play crucial roles in medical diagnosis and treatment. They also present risks. Patient infections can occur when a medical product is contaminated during manufacturing, compounding, storage, preparation, use, or misuse. Outbreaks can occur when groups of patients are exposed to contaminated medical products either in a single facility (as a result of mishandling by healthcare personnel) or across multiple facilities (for example, when a product is contaminated at the point of manufacture prior to distribution).
