    TO USE A DEVICE MORE THAN ONCE POSES SEVERAL POTENTIAL PROBLEMS FOR THE PATIENT AND POTENTIALLY YOURSELF AS WELL
    1-WHEN A NEEDLE IS USED IT BECOMES DULL FROM THE INSERTION THROUGH SKIN-SUB Q TISSUE AND VEIN.
    2-NEEDLES TODAY ARE MANUFACTURED FOR SINGLE USE ONLY
    3-CDC, INS AND OTHER GROUPS STRICTLY STATE THAT THIS CAN PROMOTE INFECTIONS
