ABSTRACT
Ten years after passage of the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act, sharps safety remains a problem in operating rooms. Data supports the use of second-generation devices that are well-made. Leading surgical associations endorse safety devices. Staff members at the Occupational Safety and Health , Administration (OSHA) expect facilities to be using some safety devices, including blunt suture needles. The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) is developing a needlestick prevention toolkit that will include a sample policy.
