ABSTRACT
The author offers observation on needlestick and other sharps injuries that occur in emergency departments in Great Britain. The author claims that the risk of these injuries is particularly high in healthcare settings such as resuscitation areas, in which prompt interventions are required. She urges readers to look around the clinical areas in which they work to see how the risk of sharps injury is being reduced.
