Safe in Common to Exhibit at American Academy of Nurse Practitioners' 27th National Conference
Date:6/21/2012

ORLANDO, Fla., June 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Safe in Common (SIC), a non-profit organization of healthcare safety advocates, announced it will exhibit at the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners' (AANP) 27th National Conference, which will be held in Orlando, Fla. from June 22 – 23. 

As part of its year-long Needlestick Safety Advocacy Tour, Safe in Common is taking an active role in attending and exhibiting at healthcare personnel conferences across the country to raise awareness about needlestick safety and the need for safer engineering controls.  According to OSHA, 5.6 million U.S. healthcare personnel are at risk of occupational exposure to HIV, hepatitis C and other life-threatening bloodborne diseases transmitted via needlestick or sharps related injuries – Safe in Common believes that this risk can be greatly reduced with proper education and training as well as the right equipment.

Dr. Mary Foley, PhD, RN, Chairperson of Safe in Common said, "With more than 155,000 nurse practitioners currently working the United States, this group is a vital part of the frontline healthcare personnel community.  During the AANP National Conference, we will continue to increase awareness of the pervasiveness of needlestick injuries. We will also provide insight into the simplest, safest technologies available so nurse practitioners can work without the fear of contracting life-threatening diseases."

Safe in Common will be exhibiting at Booth 857, where healthcare workers can engage with the Organization, learn more about how to join its mission, and sign the Needlestick Safety Pledge as a step toward preventing needlestick and sharps related injuries.
