I woke up this morning to find an article in the newspaper about a densist who re-uses IV bags.
Well this guy took out my sisters wisdom teeth and put her to sleep,used an IV etc.
So my mom called the heatlh department,the dentist,etc. He said that it is still safe becuase the the needle enters your arm then 8 inches or so of tubing is connected to it, then a stop cock which is supposed to prevent fluids from coming back up into the IV bas and then 2 or 3 more inches of tubing well only the needle and the 8 inches or so around there is discared and the rest is reused.......... And well like anything, the stop cock could malfunction allowing blood and other bodily fluids to enter to bag and be insterted int oanother patient. So now she has to go and get tested for HIV and Hepatitas, and others things (however you spell it)
Well the IV bags only cost $2.00 so why not just buy new ones? Each bag covers 2-10 patients!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
