Event Description

I received medical procedure that involved a rigid scope to look at my bladder. I acquired an infection after the procedure. I spoke to an acquaintance and the topic of third party repair came up and the fact that no company will validate sterility of any item that is repaired by a third party company only standing behind and validating sterility from the oem. Are these repair companies regulated by the fda and if not why are they allowed to repair medical devices and then be used in medical procedures without being validated for sterility? why as a patient isn't any healthcare provider notifying me that they were using such instrumentation.
