Clinical Corner: Preventing Needlesticks
by Amber Barna, RN, Manager of Clinical & Quality Services

Recently, we have seen an increase in the number of needlestick injuries!? It has been estimated that up to 800,000 needlesticks occur yearly. 

Having a needlestick is not only a stressful situation for the person who receives the stick, but it also can affect those around you as well.? There has been much advancement in the way of safe sharps, however, we still see needlesticks.? As a traveler, it is very important to be oriented not only to the equipment you will be using, but also to the processes at the facility.? When working with a device, never tamper or remove the safety apparatus.? Recapping of needles should also not be done as this increases risk of stick. ?Always choose an appropriate sharp with a safety apparatus.? It is also important to also use caution when disposing of a sharp device.

Should you have a needlestick, it is important to follow the post exposure protocol in order to make sure the course gets tested for bloodborne infections and you have baseline testing completed.? Always report the needlestick right away at the facility you are working and to the Director of Operations at Medical Solutions.? Your Career Consultant can get you in contact with that person.

For additional information, please review this?Preventing Needlestick in Health Care Setting Guide and remember to do your annual Workplace Safety Training.
