A disposable syringe consists of a plastic barrel with a needle of varying size attached. The needle comes with a cover to help prevent unintentional pokes and is great for quick care and for keeping things sterile.
The first is of course safety and sterilization. The sterilization of the syringe is no longer left up to the doctors or the medical staff but rather is not needed as the syringe is one time use and is disposed of afterwards. This means that as long as the needle is used once, there is no chance of cross contamination or of spreading any diseases with the use of the needle. There is also no need to keep these needles around after use in order to sterilize them.
Another benefit is that these needles are less expensive than a traditional needles and they are not going to need to be sharpened. This means that more attention can be paid to things like taking care of patients rather than keeping up with expensive reusable needles. These syringes come in cases and are far less expensive than it would be to buy enough reusable syringes to supply the entire facility. Since they are less expensive they are also not as big of a loss if they are broken or if they are lost before they are used.
On top of all that, disposable syringes, when properly disposed of, are safer for the environment. Proper disposal keeps syringes out of common reach and helps to keep our communities safe.
