I am an LPN in an assisted living facility. I am currently 28 days away from graduation for my RN. I have worked in this facility for about 8 mths and in that time I have asked for safety insulin needles from our DON and RD. We are on our 3rd RD and I have been asking her for 2 mths for the same thing. I have been saying this is dangerous and it is the law, someone is going to get stuck, because I was taught in school to use the scoop method for safety of pts and visitors as well as yourself. . Well this week the needle slipped on the table and jammed through the cap and my other hand was poked. My RD is writing me up for improper procedure, when everything I have researched says that the scoop method is to be used when needed(and in this case since this facility I work in says they do not have to provide us with safety needles). Any advice is needed. I refused to sign the write up because the company is also in the wrong by allowing use to work in unsafe conditions.
