Needle Stick Injuries as an occupational hazard
With its Directive 2010/32, the EU is following a clear line with regard to the most common occupational injuries in medical practices and hospitals. The directive principally addresses the issue of accidental injury to patients, medical professionals and other staff by used needles.
By making it compulsory to use products with integrated safety systems, the risk of injury is lowered significantly.
With its innovative product TRO-VENSITE safety, Troge Medical offers a state-of-the-art system that sets new standards as a result of its complexity and user-friendliness.
Particularly in situations such as the fast-paced environment of an accident and emergency department or in the ambulance service, safety systems have been compulsory for some time. This new directive now extends employers’ duty of care to the entire clinical environment.
In addition to minimising the risk to medical personnel, the use of safety systems also minimises injuries to cleaning staff that may result from the improper disposal of contaminated needles. The danger is particularly significant here as cleaning staff often do not have basic medical training.
The key feature of TRO-VENSITE safety is our innovative new safety clip. In contrast to many similar systems, this clip is completely integrated and guarantees that you will be able to use the product as usual. After establishing vascular access, the user gets a clear notification that the safety clip is clicking into place. At this point, the needle is surrounded by a plastic locking mechanism, which reduces the risk of injury to a minimum. Although the product must still be disposed of in a sharps box, there are always situations when there isn’t an appropriate disposal box to hand – by using our system, the associated risks are eliminated almost completely.
