Reuse of sharps containers


Intravenous products: A recent survey on use and reuse of sharps containers by Novation, Irving, Texas, asked members of its two owner groups, VHA and University Health System Consortium (UHC), their views on the topic. The survey, released in late October 2008, showed 60 percent of materials managers, nurses, risk managers and other hospital officials consider reusable sharps containers to be safe, a major increase over Novations 2006 survey, when only 38 percent of respondents thought so.
