For those of you whose facilities are used BD products you understand what I mean.
Orange syringes are associated with Insulin syringes...or at least they used to be. First it started with the TB syringes...the needle's hub and label suddenly started turning up orange. A couple nurses loused up and gave insulin with these syringes.
Then, the subcutaneous packaged needle and syringe started turning up with with the same color orange. Again, nurses are making mistakes.
Today I went to grab a TB syringe from the bin CLEARLY marked "TB syringes" and I grabbed nothing but a handful of Insulin syringes. Now, that was a mistake waiting to happen!
So, I'm curious...who else is experiencing this insane phenomenon?
