Unusable syringes

Do pathological laboratories like the SRLs, use un-usable syringes to draw out blood? A bit paranoid after giving a blood sample. Wanted to know the possibility of contracting STI,STD through used syringes, if in-case they did use a used one. However, I was told that the syringes cant be reused. She then burnt the syringe top and dropped it in a bin. But i had seen the syringe cap broken when she was taking the syringe out. Not sure if she did that when I wasn't watching or was like this before. She had later attached a tube at the back, to draw out blood.
