“I was infected courtesy of a lapse in concentration…”

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?
