Why do they sterilise needles for lethal injections?
If they're going to die anyway, should we worry about contracting diseases?
Do they sterilize lethal injections? I don't think they do. If they do it's probably so they don't get the zombie disease and come alive again looking for brains.
Most needles come in single use packages. They are so cheap it doesn't matter.
But it's not the Death Row Inmate they are protecting, necessarily. It's the staff adminstering the injection. If they were to slip, or jab themselves accidentally after giving the injection - the only person they need to check for disease is the DR Inmate's corpse (and themseves of course).
If it was unsterilised...they could be accidentally giving themselves a death sentence.
As a nurse, I'd rather the needles were sterile thanks.
It's in case the executioner accidentally sticks himself.
If they were worried about the inmate for some reason, they would sterilize his arm with alcohol pads.
