Wastage

Using pre-filled syringes means less wastage from the disposal of drugs prepared “just in case”, and which end up unused (3).

  • Reduction of total volume of waste (needles, ampoules, syringes, wipes, packaging …)
  • Drug waste could account for more than 25% of a hospital’s anesthesia drug budget
  • One estimates the average drug wastage cost per case of almost 15$ (3, 12)

Waste disposal

The cost of clinical waste disposal for a UK hospital is between £335 and £700 per tonne depending on its classification, when the cost of general waste disposal is about £100 per tonne (14).
