Home Healthcare covers a broad range of health issues:
- Those whose medical condition requires them to regularly inject themselves e.g. diabetics, and thus the need to safely dispose of sharps
- However for others Home healthcare aims to make it possible for them to remain at home rather than use residential, long-term, or institutional-based nursing care. Home care providers render services in the client’s own home. These services may include some combination of professional health care services and life assistance services, or care by family and friends. Where this involves injections then the need to safely handle and dispose of sharps.
