Support for the Preventing Superbugs and Protecting Patient Act

Consumers Union, the public policy and advocacy arm of Consumer Reports, expresses strong support for the Preventing Superbugs and Protecting Patients Act. The legislation is of utmost importance. Recent widespread infection control breaches – due to improper cleaning of duodenoscopes – put the American public in danger by spreading antibiotic resistant superbugs through these devices. The Act takes important steps toward addressing the deficiencies of the current oversight of medical devices.
