Dear SIR, Today i went for blood test. There was lots of people in line for giving blood. The nurse used new needle stick, and new collection tube for collecting blood, but she used same needle holder for everyone. Is that right procedure? Will this kind of procedure pose any risk for transmission of any kind of disease.Please reply sir.

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

This is a fine and proper procedure. It will not pose a risk for disease. This is because it's not touching the part that's going inside anyone's body.

Hope this helps!
