Although I tried to subtly probe the safe and clean issue in terms of waste disposal, I didn't get much information. I didn't want to ask a leading question regarding whether or not the nurse felt that he/she was unsafe because of improper disposal procedures. It was very interesting to find that disposal was inconvenient. I would be interested to understand why and maybe go from there. I'm starting to think that if disposal is easier, people will make the right decisions. That is my hypothesis. Same thing applies to my other survey. Its easier for people to throw pills away in the garbage, yet most of them do not know the proper way to dispose. Making it easier could save a lot of drugs and toxins from entering our food and water supply.
