The Covidien 8 Gallon Red SharpSafety Sharps Container is a large-volume durable container which is primarily used as a disposable case for sharp medical instruments such as needles. With a flat base, the container can be placed anywhere with ease without having to be mounted on anything. The container is red in color that makes it easier to spot while the lid is transparent to allow users to see the contents inside it.
The Sharps Container can be used at home to dispose insulin pen needles or injections, in vaccination centers, and even in hospitals. Disposing the needles and instruments off in the container helps eliminate the risk of contamination and exposure to harmful bacteria. The large volume of the Covidien 8 Gallon Container allows it to be used for a long time without having to transport the container for disposal after small durations. It is available in two options with different lids, a hinged-locking lid and a slide-lid. These lids provide temporary protection when the container is not in use and ensure the safety of both healthcare professionals and patients. For final disposal, they can be locked in tightly.
The container has a height of seventeen and a half inches, a width of fifteen and a half inches, and a depth of eleven inches. These dimensions sum up to provide a total volume of eight gallons or thirty liters that can be used for disposal.
