I am a nursing student. I am writing a paper as a class assignment on the quality control management to prevent needlesick injuries.If anyone is involved in the educational program or the quality control for safer devices in your facility, please give me a information on this issue.

Our facility uses safty-lock needles. Once an injection is given, it has a protective cover you pull down and snap into place. It prevents anyone from touching the needle. I really like them and since we switched to these we have had no needle sticks reported in our facility.
