Alert


Warning indicators are essential in mitigating risks to the exposure of bloodborne pathogens.  Warning indicators are present throughout medical care, from biohazard labels on sharps containers, to drug warning… labels. Both written and graphic presentations are widely used and have proven effective in mitigating risks, when these warnings are appropriately designed for the specified audience (Andrews, 2011).  Products such as NeedleTape (die-cut medical tape that provides enhanced visual awareness to the presence of needles), provide this type of warning indicator for healthcare worker in numerous healthcare settings.
