Sharps Injury Prevention

m Bookmark and Share

Sharps injuries expose health care workers to bloodborne pathogens and continue to be a serious health and safety hazard. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 385,000 sharps-related injuries occur annually among health care workers in hospitals. It has been estimated about half or more of sharps injuries go unreported. Most reported sharps injuries involve nursing staff, but laboratory staff, physicians, housekeepers, and other health care workers are also injured.
