Safety Cord Clamping/Cutting
The umbilical cord of infants is typically cut by placing two plastic clamps on the cord and then severing the cord with scissors. It is important that the cord cutting be performed with sterile instruments. Both disposable and reusable scissors are a potential source of sharps injuries to healthcare workers and others. Newer technologies exist that can take the risk of a sharps injury out of this procedure.
