Threats to the Plan - and response
  • Impact to Original Manufacturer (OEM) profit
  • Expect letters from OEMs directed at physicians
    hospital managers to instill fear and stir
    emotions.
  • Response Get the facts to physicians, board
    approved policies and FDA policy for 3rd party
    reprocessors. Reply to the OEM requesting that
    they stop the counterdetailing at your facility.
  • Emotional response from staff MDs
  • Staff can de-rail the best plan with
    non-supportive actions
  • Response Allow for meetings as a department
    group and individually (manager staff/MD) to
    discuss personal emotions and respond with fact
    based answers and expectations for staff
    performance. Let them kick the tires and get
    their concerns openly addressed. Special
    emphasis to the Infection Control Practitioner
