Safety Waste Disposal

Historically, the procedures for emptying a blood-filled control syringe in a cardiology catheter lab meant purging it into a bowl or basin on the table.  This often resulted in the splashing of blood on work surfaces, floors, and often co-workers.  OSHA has demanded that unnecessary exposure to bloodborne pathogens be removed from the work site. Safer alternatives to this open basis squirt are available to collect bodily fluids. These safety products minimize exposure by preventing the splash-back of blood and other body fluids.
