Information About Safely Using Sharps:

    • If you are accidently stuck by another person's used needle or other sharp:
        1. Wash the exposed area right away with water and soap or use a skin disinfectant (antiseptic) such as rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer.
        2. Seek immediate medical attention by calling your physician or local hospital.
      • Follow these same instructions if you get blood or other bodily fluids in your eyes, nose, mouth, or on your skin.
