Study Confirms Passive Safety Devices Are Most Effective in Needlestick Injury Prevention
Date:10/26/2010

cording to the study, fully automatic or passive safety devices are most effective for NSI prevention. The B. Braun Medical Inc. (B. Braun) Introcan Safety® IV Catheter was one of the devices used in this study and is a market share leader in fully automatic, passive safety technology IV catheters.

"Automatic safety features in catheters are critical to reducing accidental needlestick injuries," said Lynn Hadaway, M.Ed., RN, BC, CRNI, who has more than 35 years experience in infusion nursing and adult education. "The study clearly demonstrates why healthcare facilities need to carefully select devices on the basis of their passive safety features." Hadaway recently recorded her thoughts on the significance of this study and that video can be accessed here.

Janine Jagger, Director of the International Healthcare Workers Safety Center at the University of Virginia said the study "may never be replicated because of its sheer size – involving 22 million needle devices."

"The researchers have demonstrated that devices requiring the least manipulation to cover the needles have the lowest injury rates - passive devices being the lowest," she said. "This is the same phenomenon that was first demonstrated more than 20 years ago, but with comparisons at that time to conventional needles. The technological advances since then have been amazing. We should not forget that all of these safety designs are significantly safer than conventional needles."

"This study adds a critical new layer of evidence supporting the adoption and use of safety engineered devices to prevent healthcare worker injuries and exposure to blood borne pathogens like hepatitis C and HIV. It provides conclusive evidence of the increased protection fully automatic devices provide when compared with other early generation safety-engineered devices," said Tom Sutton, Vice Presid
