  1. Insulin syringe disposal practices of pediatric patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.

    Article - En anglais

    Pediatric patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus were surveyed over a 5-month period to determine disposal practices of insulin syringes.

    Eighty-nine (79.5%) of 112 patients surveyed responded.

    Thirty-three percent of the responders disposed of syringes in accordance with recommendations of the local health department and the American Diabetes Association, while the remaining patients did not.

    Fifty-two percent of the patients rendered the syringes useless before disposal.

    The study revealed a need to educate and inform patients on the proper procedures that should be followed when disposing of syringes in the home.
