Folow the rules of asepsis.
All the components are for single use only.
A catheter should not be left in situ for more than 72 hours.

dispose of the soiled needle into a sealed container
get rid of in a sharp pit
During emergency start-up, other strategies may be applied if containers for incineration are usd. The containers’ combustion has to be centralized in a protected area. Put the containers in a metallic trunk of which extremities have been taken off, placed on a metallic grate above a pit in which the residues fall. After combustion, fill the pit with a mixture of cement/lime/water or concrete in order to render the residues inaccessible.
