Thank you so much for posting this info. I JUST got stuck the other day de-accessing a lifeport, and had to go thru 5 of the worst days of my life, workers comp, labs, bloodwork, booster immunizations and the worst being the meds. Protease inhibitors and antiretrovirals. UGH.
And it's not over. But thank God we got the source sample back and the patient was negative!
YAY!!!! But just to know that this is something that has happened to others (the rebound stick) and that there are devices in existence to prevent this from happenning. All I was thinking for this whole week is "there are all kinds of safety needles and devices, but I have never seen a safety huber" well, now I have. I think I will take this to the attention of the infusion providers that I usually work with. Thanks again!
