Urologist Defends Reusing Devices On Patients

The Valley urologist whose medical license has been suspended for reusing single-use needle guides now blames an equipment vendor for suggesting he could do so, according to a paid advertisement in today’s Review-Journal.

The ad, produced by Dr. Michael Kaplan’s attorney, Dominic Gentile, appears in the Nevada section.

According to the R-J,  Kaplan’s medical license was suspended nine days ago by the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners after a joint investigation with the Food and Drug Administration, the federal agency that regulates the use of medical devices.

Authorities said that for three months, Kaplan reused single-use-only plastic needle guides for prostate/rectal biopsies, discarding them only when they reportedly became “too bloody.”

    This is just common greed, should do the same to this doctor and see what he thinks about it, what an ass.
