Search for syringes, needle caps and broken needles. Once found, they are removed to sharps bins for incineration.
Painstaking search through all clothing, furniture, beds and bedding, waste bins, accumulated waste, cupboards etc.
Similarly detailed search to all outside areas where presence of sharps is suspected.
Inspection of all accessible 'void~ areas e.g. behind bath panels, in service ducting, behind broken plasterboards etc.
Visual inspection around sinks and bath traps. Where needles are suspected to be present, or where the traps are blocked, we recommend removal of those traps.
Inspection of all structures, carpeted wall/floor junctions, under loose flooring covers etc.
