Needle injuries at work doubled in past decade


I have practised in A&E for over 25 years where many nasty sharp things used. I have never suffered a sharps injury. All sharps injuries are the result of sloppy, incompetent practise. There is and cannot be any excuse! Individual ward/dept. managers must be held accountable for every sharps injury which occurs within their area of responsibility. Safe use of sharps is easy!
