MD wants me to get rid of his sharps
« on: July 07, 2008, 11:57:09 PM »

Hello: I have been a nurse for 8 years. I have worked in CA, HI,AZ and now TX. I never been asked by a physician to get rid of his sharps until today. He put in a central line and specifically told me to get rid of all of his sharps. I refused. He said all of the other nurses do it. I need some written guidelines to show him that his request is inconsiderate and unacceptable. Please email me
