Speak Up To Prevent Sharps Injuries

It’s day 6 of the Don't Get Stuck challenge. Today's tip is speak up to prevent sharps injuries.

Many nurses and other health care workers are injured because they didn’t know a sharp or needle was in use. In fact, nearly 25 percent of all injuries happen to a team member not using the sharp or needle itself.

Whenever you’re using a sharp or needle, let others around you know to stay back and remain aware during the process.
