"Common sense prevails: Single patient use vials such as propofol are to be handled appropriately," he said in a recently Pharm-ASC publication. "Any multiple dose vial that has been used in a sterile field, placed on a contaminated surface or used procedural tray or has been used in an emergent procedure should be discarded after use for such purpose."
