Needlestick Safety Pledge
A safe working environment is essential if I am to effectively serve the needs of my patients. Needlestick and sharps injuries represent one of the most serious threats to occupational safety within my facility.
The pain and trauma that these injuries inflict upon healthcare personnel, and their loved ones, is unacceptable. The dollars lost each year in the testing and treatment of reported injuries is unacceptable. The continued use of medical equipment that fails to adequately address the safety and functional needs of healthcare workers and their patients is unacceptable.
