Hobart school kids share syringes to prick themselves

Three students at a Hobart primary school have been found pricking each other with a syringe they found outside a doctor’s surgery.

The incident is the fourth in as many weeks involving students found with syringes, needles and other sharp objects, prompting fears about the dangers of bloodborne viruses and diseases.

We do not know of the approved arrangements in Hobart for the storage and collection of clinical wastes and sharps bins from GP surgeries and from domiciliary producers. It is unlikely to be different from those in the UK.



It is time to wake up to waste security.
