The is the recommended method for disposing of your used and contaminated syringe needles, blades, scalpels, staples, and most any sharp object that has come in contact with bodily fluids or skin tissue. When selecting a container, you have a panoply of sharps containers offered to you, choosing the right one can be a little overwhelming at times; especially if you are still trying to find the right one.
The Covidien Sharps-A-Gator 5 Quart Transparent Red Container helps you narrow down your selection, being constructed with a translucent red base, this is helpful for viewing the current base capacity for a clear indicator as to whether or not you would need to purchase more sharps containers soon. When disposing of your items, you are limited to the amount of contact you make with the container. While some sharp containers offer features such as a rotating chamber such as the Plasti-Products 5 Quart Red Sharps Container; you may even want less contact. The Covidien 31144010 Sharps Container has an opened lid for dropping in of your used sharp items - you do not have to come into full contact with the container thanks to the Tortuous-path design that keeps you safe from possible diseases that can lurk within the container.
A large 5-quart base has a large enough capacity for most hospital and health facilities. A procedure facilities have used in order to save money and space comes from clipping the needles of syringes with a clipper such as the BD Safe Clip Needle Clipper. With horizontal entry, when you drop in an item, it gets accommodated horizontally within the container; other sharps containers that are all-purpose may lack this simple function - ultimately ending with the container becoming full quicker.
The durable plastic base keeps items secured within the container even with accidental dropping; the container will not crack - keeping contents from spilling out, producing an unsafe environment. The 5-Quart Sharps A Gator Container is compatible with the Hidden Bracket and Key for Sharps-A-Gator Sharps Container in order to mount the container up on a wall and away from children for added safety.
