Give your patients proper sharps disposal tips

by NCPA | Dec 03, 2018

Many of your patients use sharps outside of your pharmacy, doing injections themselves or through caregivers. Let them know how to reduce the risk of injury by properly disposing their sharps. A few tips you can share: sharps should never be thrown loosely into the trash or toilet, sharps should never be recycled, and sharps that retract after use, or are very small, should be disposed of like all other sharps. SafeNeedleDisposal.org provides information you can use in your pharmacy along with tips you can share with patients. Visit SafeNeedleDisposal.org to learn more.
