PMID:  21864939     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
Syringes used to administer intravenous medications in an intensive care unit were cultured, and the isolates were compared with those from positive blood cultures from the same patients. The overall contamination rate was 16%, and syringes used for drugs such as insulin, which support bacterial growth, had higher contamination rates. All syringes should be changed routinely after 6h.
