Only One Syringe, Only One Needle, and Only for You!
In the last decade, more than 125,000 patients in the United States were advised to get tested for hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and HIV due to syringes being used on more than one patient and medicine vials being used incorrectly. Unsafe injection practices have also resulted in dozens of outbreaks from the transmission of bloodborne pathogens. Safe medical injection practices must be followed to ensure patient safety and to prevent the transmission of disease.
