      Threats to the Plan - and response
Impact to Original Manufacturer (OEM) profit
     Expect letters from OEM’s 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 support, Collection & Re-stocking of product.
