Experts from around the globe describe the intersection between patient and healthcare worker safety, focusing on techniques to improve both occupational and public health.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Describe the current global impact of bloodborne disease
  • Describe occupational exposure incidents for needlesticks and sharps injuries
  • Define safety as a function of focus for both patient and health worker, to reduce overall bloodborne disease
  • Provide guidance on the importance of prevention programs including use of safer medical devices, immunization/vaccination programs, and safe clinical practices
  • Illustrate an effective pathway for reporting exposure incidents and injuries
  • Define processes for post-exposure medical treatment and prophylaxis
  • Share global experiences from key stakeholders responsible for sharps safety and public health programs around the world

A few steps to deliver structured injection technique training include:2

  • Use a new needle with every injection
  • Rotate injection sites and inject within sites at least one finger width apart
  • Shift to shorter needle lengths (e.g., 4mm pen needles and 6mm needle insulin syringes)

Nearly 50% of patients reuse their needles3+

Reusing the same needle has been associated with injection pain and increased risk of developing lipohypertrophy (lumps and bumps under the skin) at injection sites4+

Meet clinical recommendations.5

BD Nano™ 2nd Gen Pen Needles were preferred overall compared to other pen needles studied.

  • Wider outer cover — easier to attach to pen device6
  • Larger, green, inner needle shield — 4 easier to grip and remove before an injection6
  • Contoured needle base — provides greater comfort and a more reliable injection6

Features PentaPoint™ Comfort and EasyFlow™ Technology for a more comfortable injection7,8

BD Pen Needles and Insulin Syringes are covered by most health plans at the preferred co-pay, including Medicare Part D

When refilling insulin, ask your patients if they need a refill of needles.

6-month study duration, n=116; baseline HbA1c 8.7% ± 1.4 %.
13,289 patients with diabetes who inject insulin participated in an ITQ survey. 38.8% of the 2,711 patients using insulin syringes reported needle reuse. 55.8% of the 11,961 patients using pen needles reported needle reuse
A causal relationship has not been established. 13,289 insulin-injecting patients participated in a survey. Logistic regression analysis was used to find the association between pen needle reuse and LH (P=.02). Pain was associated with needle reuse and is a function of the number of times the needle is reused (P<.001)
††
226 patients with diabetes on insulin treatment were studied with a 150 mm visual analog scale (mean scores of >0 mm; clinically significant difference of ≥5 mm). BD Nano™ 2nd Gen demonstrated superiority vs. all comparator groups combined for overall ease of use. [(P <0.05)(Mean 19.9 mm, 95% CI, +13.8 to +25.9 mm)]
