Needlestick injuries are among the most common occupationalrelated
accidents in the healthcare sector. The actual hazard
potential is not caused by the needlestick itself, but related to
the risk of the injured patients contracting infections from
blood-borne viruses, such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C or HIV contagions.
The considerably higher rate of infection encountered
among dialysis patients means that users in the dialysis sector
are exposed to a significantly greater risk of infection.
The use of safety needles can reduce this risk significantly.
The DiacanÃâÃÂ® S safety needle from B. Braun offers extremely easy
handling. When the needle is removed at the end of treatment,
the integrated safety mechanism means that it no longer poses
a risk to users. One distinctive feature is that the puncture
handling procedure is the same as that of standard fistula needles.
So, there's hardly any need to adapt routine workflows.
