Management of Sharps

Management of Sharps

Q.In relation to Management of Sharps as I understand we are not allowed to re-sheath needles. I wonder what everyone is doing in their practice i.e. using disposable syringes, certain types of needle guards, etc.

Has anyone done sharps risk assessment in their practice that they can share with us?

A.We are using the Septodont safe needle system

A.Hi we are all supposed to be using disposable syringes with needles attached, so you don't need to worry about safety as they cover the needles when finished with.
