After investigation, we found that medical institutions have different requirements for the treatment of the front part of the infusion set, some according to the treatment of injury waste, and some according to infectious waste. Some institutions treat the front section of the infusion set according to infectious waste, and some cut the steel needle and plastic tip of the front end of the infusion set into the sharps box. So what would be more appropriate?
First, let’s talk about what is going on at the front end of the infusion tube. The part of the infusion bag inserted at the front end of the infusion tube is commonly known as the “bottle stopper puncture device”, also known as the “puncture bottle needle”, generally includes a needle tube, needle tip, needle holder, slotted opening, the needle tip is located at the upper end of the needle tube, the needle holder is located at the lower end of the needle tube, the upper end of the groove opening is located at the tip of the needle or the lower end of the needle tip 1mm ~ 3mm, the lower end of the groove opening is located 3mm ~ 5mm from the upper end of the needle holder, are all plastic components.
The plastic stopper needle ensures that the liquid trapped in the infusion bottle quickly enters the infusion set through the grooved opening, and at the same time prevents the bottle or infusion bottle stopper from falling off during puncture.
Based on the above, in fact, the possibility of plastic cork puncture needles carrying pathogenic microorganisms or causing infection is actually very small, and it is somewhat far-fetched if classified as infectious medical waste.
Therefore, classifying plastic cork puncture needles as traumatic medical waste is more in line with the relevant classification standards. When disposing of this medical waste, it needs to be separated with scissors, and the steel needle part needs to be put into the sharps box, which can effectively prevent the sharp injury and protect the safety of the operator.
