    We also rinse with water and dispose of frequently.

    How are you all cleaning utensils such as measuring jugs, bed-pans and urinals after containing body fluids of patients receiving hazardous medications?

    We have discussed using bleach in the past but wanted to see what others are doing.

    Thank you,
