Well, it's no bag of broken glass.  But still fun for kids of all ages!

As somewhat of an expert on sharing dirty needles with toddlers, I have to say that it's really rare that this kid would actually get anything from it.

So, you're saying that's a BAD idea?

I doubt a nurse would have left a sharp in a yellow bin; probably some idiot diabetic.

"My daughter shouldn't have to suffer, even for a month, because of somebody else's ignorance and laziness, as far as I'm concerned."

The irony of this statement is just mind boggling. Aren't YOU, as the parent, supposed to be keeping an eye on your child? Particularly in a hospital of all places...

Yellow bins are exactly where sharps are left.

What the hell, Canada?

Yellow? First bags with milk in them, and now yellow sharps boxes?

I was going to ask how a toddler got into one, and then I realized that toddlers can get into anything.

I don't think it was a sharps box, just an open plastic bin.

As a former hosptial worker (even though I was a paper pusher) I have to ask what kind of hospital doesn't have Sharps Containers?

There are red sharps bins, but most are yellow.

Must be a regional thing. I've never seen a yellow sharps bin in my area of the country. They're either Red with clear tops, or clear and wall mounted.

That's strange.  When I was a kid I kept all my toys in red bins, so I would never use yellow.

If you RTFA, you'll see there was a wall-mounted sharps box. The little girl got into a regular old biohazard garbage can that had needles in it, which is a big no-no. The kind for diapers, dressings, bandages and the like.

Mom should have been watching her kid more closely, but there shouldn't have been used needles in a regular garbage bin either. That's just lazy and stupid on the part of whatever worker couldn't be arsed to put needles in the sharps box where they belong.

Yes, parents should keep an eye on their kids, but it takes less than a second for a kid to plunge their hand into a bucket of syringes that shouldn't farking be there in the first place.

I still don't understand how a professional hospital would do that. Even way back when I did it (in the 90s) there would have been some kind of HUGE punishment/it's a teaching moment crap. Like an inspection every week and massive amounts of "sharps training" for everyone, including the paper pusher clerks.

Bears repeating. Real nice display of personal responsibility there.

Also, bets that the needles were in there because of some junkie, not because of the medical staff?

Red bins are for sharps; there are no sharps in the yellow bins.

The kid is probably going to wind up associating visiting the hospital with getting sick now too.

Let's be honest here. This is about that abortion, isn't it?

 It's really the only sensible thing to do, if its done safely. Therapeutically there's no danger involved.

You are correct. Ignore the assholes who attempt to pass blame.
