A study by Harvard found that 90% of the 100 drugs they tested were still found to be good to use 15 years after use by date.Same thing with medical supplies. Just because a 4x4 sterile gauze is expired, doesn't mean it's not sterile anymore. Same goes with medications: ibuprofen, antibiotics, etc. They don't lose potency with expiration. It's the biggest crock of shit geared to make medical facilities trash perfectly good items.
