Fast food sharps

Needle with drop of bloodA mum has spoken of her disgust after finding a used needle and splattered blood in an Aberdeen fast food restaurant.

She found the needle, a lighter, and blood on the floor in the disabled toilet in Burger King on Aberdeen’s Union Street.

One can only sympathise with the restaurant chain. What are they to do?  Ban those who look like IV dug users – how can they tell?  Close the toilets?  Install sharps bins?

Whatever action they might take, they will face a barrage of complaint.  Regular checks by cleaning and/or security staff, and properly equipped and trained cleaners is probably the only answer, but without a check after every single users and with locks on the doors even that is flawed.
