Idea Exchange: Reduce costs and waste by reusing syringe caps

When we use allergy syringes (BD) in the hospital, we save the gray caps because they fit the 1-ml Metacam (Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica) oral dosing syringes. We used to buy caps for the Metacam syringes that go home with our patients, but this method saves money and helps the environment.
