    What is wrong with the container that Sue is placing the guide wire in?

      It is too close to the wall. All sharps containers should be place a minimum of 2' from biohazard garbage to decrease the chance of cross-contamination

      The guide wire does not belong in the 'trayed' sharps container. They are supposed to go into the tall 'tray-less' container.

      The lid of the container is not open fully. This dramatically increase the chance of needle stick injuries.

      If you were to squeeze the gauze and blood came out, it should go in the biohazard container.

    • C. 

      If you were to squeeze the gauze and blood did not come out, it should go in the biohazard container.
