Re: [IPk] Sharps bins

Hi Kerrie
You only need to put the actual inserter needle in the sharps bin, not 
the whole infusion set.
I just snap off the needle part of the inserter using my fingers, and 
put that in the bin (using the Silhouettes). But you can get a needle 
clipper thing that does the job for you.
