Type: Text Slide with Images
Content: Illustrations of a hinged safety device attached to a syringe needle and a blood tube holder
The hinged safety device can either be purchased separately to add on to an existing syringe or purchased pre-attached to a syringe or blood tube holder.
Once the needle is used, the hinge should be clicked into place using a tabletop-- NOT the other hand.
The activated (used) device must then be placed in a sharps box and treated as regulated waste.
