Nurse_safety_b

Every day while caring for patients, health care workers are at risk to exposure to bloodborne pathogens potentially resulting in infections such as HIV or hepatitis B and C. Sharp injuries can occur before, during or even after use of a sharp. Injury can affect you and your loved ones.

Sometimes, once is enough…

Prevention: Successful reduction in number of sharps injuries and infection prevention have been achieved in regions that implement:

  • Safe sharps handling and disposal programs
  • Immunization of health care workers
  • Use of safety products like safety lancets
  • Post exposure prophylaxis (PEP)
