[IP] Sharps container
Last week, I was in McCarran airport in Las
Vegas where I used the men's restroom. Beside the towel dispenser was a
"sharps" container for disposing of syringes. The container gave
instructions and showed a diagramn of the proper disposal of a
I was amazed. Have persons
with diabetes become such a vocal minority in Nevada that every restroom has a
place for discarding used needles? Is the heroin problem out of control in
Vegas? When did this airport begin doing this, and do all airports now have
sharps containers? I haven't seen these anywhere else, except for the doctor's
office, of course.
After years of looking for
places and ways to discard syringes in public, there is now a proper place--and
wouldn't you know it, I am now on the pump.
