Weekly poll: Needlestick safety devices

By: February 13th, 2012 Email This Post Print This Post

The OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens standard requires employers to “Document annually consideration and implementation of appropriate commercially available and effective safer medical devices designed to eliminate or minimize occupational exposure.” In healthcare facilities, this requirement applies to safety devices for needlestick prevention. How confident are you that your healthcare facility has considered and provided you with the best safety devices to prevent needlesticks? Take our OSHA Healthcare Advisor Weekly Poll and let us know.

I understand the risk for needle sticks using insulin pens. Is there a safety needle for them that does not require recapping by staff to remove the needle?
