Extreme care has to be taken while disposing sharps. One has to be aware of the consequences if sharp disposal is not done appropriately. On the other hand, health professionals who frequently use needles and other sharps waste should take utmost care in safely handling all the materials, until they’re disposed. The final step of disposing sharps is to dispose the sharps in an autoclave, a strong, heated medical device that uses steam to sterilize equipment, using high pressure and temperature.
Sharps – Biohazardous Waste That Can Cause Serious Health Concerns
Sharps is biohazardous waste, composed of used sharps, including any sharp medical instrument such as needles, syringes, and lancets, used to puncture or lacerate the skin during the treatment of any ailments. Injuries from sharp waste can cause serious health problems. If it is allowed to penetrate the skin, it can spread dangerous blood-borne pathogens, which can cause various, life-threatening diseases such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV. So, sharps disposal has to be done in the right way.
Use the Appropriate Sharps Container to Dispose Sharps
A sharps container, made of hard plastic, is used to properly dispose of hypodermic needles and other sharp medical objects. Sharp containers are typically single use containers that are disposed of with waste inside them. However, there are sharps containers that can be reused after they’re robotically emptied and sterilized.
