Safely Dispose of Medical Sharps for Your Healthcare Facility
What is Medical Sharps Waste?
Sharps waste consists of used, non-sterile medical instruments such as needles, syringes, scalpels, and lancets that have either been used in medical procedures or to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. After use, these items are now contaminated with bodily fluids and possible life threatening blood borne pathogens and diseases such as HIV/AIDS or Hepatitis. These items are referred to as “sharps” because they can puncture skin and transmit and cause infection to others if not properly disposed of.
