During the CDC Grand Rounds yesterday, an Injection Safety Checklist was discussed.
The Injection Safety checklist items are a subset of items that can be found in the CDC Infection Prevention Checklist for Outpatient Settings: Minimum Expectations for Safe Care.
The checklist, which is appropriate for both inpatient and outpatient settings, should be used to systematically assess adherence of healthcare personnel to safe injection practices. (Assessment of adherence should be conducted by direct observation of
healthcare personnel during the performance of their duties.)
A copy of the checklist can be obtained here.
What kind of response have you had in your facility as you make an effort to comply with these safety practices?
