Trick of the Trade: Safer guidewire disposal
Have you ever accidentally flicked a drop of blood while disposing a straight guidewire into a rectangular sharps bin? The bins just don't quite fit the wire easily. That's just an occupational exposure just waiting to happen to yourself.
Trick of the Trade:
Wrap guidewire around knuckles and dispose in reversed glove
