when finished with needles....

In most injection guide things it often says in massive bold text "DO NOT RE-CAP USED NEEDLES" Just wondering why not? is it incase some bum finds it in the bin and decides to shoot himself up with a used needle?

    Because you increase the chance of jabbing yourself in the finger/hand etc. I work in research where we used a carcinoma cell line and I used to resuspend pellets of ceels with 20G needles - recapping often resulted in pricking myself which has the potential to be dangerous etc. This is more because nurses etc may be jabbing someone else, and with HIV and other nasty blood pathogens around etc, can be dangerous. Hence they recommend that you put straigh into a sharps bin.

    As you have been jabbing yourself, I see no problem in recapping.

    always wondered that myself actually, assumed it was as above, if you leave the cap off the needle is obviously used rather than a recapped one could be mistaken but obviously not!!!

    i always recap never poked my fingers yet! But then I have my eyes open, maybe other dont?
