Comments for FDA General
Questions
1. General Comments I am looking at the various needleless information and still wonder why there is a concern anout needles used IN intravenous tubing. It would be sterile and no hazard. Secondly, if the contaminated needle is such a concern, (and I agree it is) why are the blood banks drawing the blood for donations exempt. There is obviously a HIGH level of risk to an employee who does blood draws daily.
