One needle, one syringe, only one time? A survey of physician and nurse knowledge, attitudes, and practices around injection safety.
Kossover-Smith RA, Coutts K, Hatfield KM, et al. Am J Infect Control. 2017;45:1018-1023.
Unsafe injection practices in health care settings have led to more than 50 disease outbreaks in the past 20 years. In this cross-sectional, voluntary survey across 8 states, 12% of responding physicians stated that needles were reused between patients in their workplace. Nearly 8% of physicians thought this was an acceptable practice. The authors discuss implications for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's One & Only safe injection campaign.
