CDC post educates on safe injection practices

OSHA Healthcare Connection, April 1, 2008

Concerns about recent reports of unsafe injection procedures, especially in ambulatory and office-based settings, prompted the CDC to host an educational call March 27 for healthcare providers. The call, which can be downloaded with an accompanying PowerPoint presentation, instructs on basic infection control practices and the need to monitor healthcare personnel practices to ensure safety.

The CDC also added new resources for both healthcare professionals and patients to its Infection Safety Web page including:

  • Injection Safety Information for Providers
  • Injection Safety FAQ's for Providers
  • Safe work and injection practices to prevent exposure to bloodborne pathogens in healthcare setting.
  • A Patient Safety Threat - Syringe Reuse
