Marea Enterprises Releases Needle Safety Protocol

Marea Enterprises Releases Needle Safety Protocol titled:

A Recommended Universal Protocol for Preventing Needlesticks to Allied Healthcare Workers in Perioperative Settings Where Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring with Subdermal Needles is Performed.

The protocol provides specific concrete recommendations on how to prevent needlesticks within intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM).  This protocol is the first of its kind within this healthcare sector where healthcare workers experience significant numbers of needlesticks.  As is the case within healthcare in general, IONM experiences high levels of underreporting with respect to needlesticks.
