Discard Properly After Use
(c) Melanie Martinez
It's important to discard a used EpiPen properly. The needle is sharp and can injure someone. If the patient has a virus like HIV or hepatitis, it is possible -- however unlikely -- to spread the disease to another person through a used EpiPen.
Put the EpiPen back in its hard plastic case to transport it to the hospital for proper disposal.
