I was recently reading an article online and came across this picture….
The author was a physician in the UK that was infected with HIV from a needlestick injury. As I read the article and looked at the graphic above I got angry. This poor doctor felt that this was HIS fault… I don’t think that is true! I believe that many needlestick injuries are caused by the following factors:
- the management of the facility refused to supply proper safety productsc
- convetntional products are being used instead of safety products
- safety product features were not activated
What do you think?
