introduced a new sharps collection system designed specifically for use in
diameter inclined through-wall tubes provided for sharps collection storage
bins have an operational issue, which can potentially risk a needle stick injury
to staff handling the waste.
units in public restrooms inevitably receive other waste, which may jam and
block the unit. If a needle is dropped into the tube subsequently, it can get caught
behind the jammed material, presenting a safety risk for other users and staff when
dislodging the waste.
Pureablue’s new Sharps-Safe
system has the disposal aperture flush mounted with the collection box
concealed and accessed from the rear service room for vandal protection. The
disposal aperture face plate restricts the size of the object that can be
dropped into the tube, with the objects falling through an oversized stainless
steel tube, and dropping into an appropriately sized sharps collection unit,
eliminating any chance of a blockage in the tube.
Pureablue can be
consulted for specifying the Sharps-Safe sharps collection system in a new restroom
project or for retrofitting the unit to an existing facility.
