Qlicksmart provides webinars for healthcare providers worldwide. These online discussions focus on sharps safety and how to keep your staff and patients safe.
Sharps Injury – Risks and Prevention Strategies
Sharps cuts and injuries from scalpels, suture needles, and other sharps are a significant occupational hazard for nurses and other healthcare professionals. These cuts and injuries can have long-term impacts on the physical and psychological health of nurses, and can be costly for the healthcare facility. Sharps injuries can be avoided when individuals and facilities rethink their perceptions around staff safety and patient safety, and by implementing an effective sharps safety program.
In this session, we are going to cover the current statistics on the risks and consequences of sharps safety, Australia’s current regulatory position on sharps safety, and practical guidance for prevention strategies following the Hierarchy of Controls. It is vital that all nurses and healthcare professionals who come in contact with sharps are aware of how they can keep themselves and their colleagues safe from injury.
