A surprise encounter with a used syringe, needle, or other sharp in a playground, park, or at work can provoke intense fears of injury and life-threatening infections, such as HIV (the virus that causes AIDS), and hepatitis B and C. To prevent such injuries outside of health care facilities, disposal methods for used needles and other sharps need to be dramatically improved.
Hot Springs County Memorial Hospital is offering a contaminated sharps program in an attempt to protect against exposure to blood borne pathogens.
How it works:
A one time fee of $10.00
Register and pick up a sharps container at the hospital reception desk.
Return sharps container when three fourths full and properly closed to the hospital emergency room department (Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM in exchange for a new container).
