A few questions on needlesticks:
How many have you had?
How long have you been a nurse?
What was the situation in which they occured?
Just curious and hoping to get some new insight on how they can happen!
My answer: I had one while I was still in nursing school
. It was a Vit K injection I had just prepared in L&D and I dropped the needle (before it was dirty!). It somehow went perpendicular to my leg..through my scrubs
and stabbed me in the knee.
