Unsafe Injection Practices

The Joint Commission has released an alert on “Preventing Infection from the Misuse of Vials,” advising how hepatitis B or C viruses, meningitis, and other types of infections have been caused by reusing single-use vials, and by reusing multiple-use vials with improper procedures, for the same or different patients.  For details see http://www.jointcommission.org/the_joint_commission_alerts_health_care_industry_to_prevalence_of_unsafe_injection_practices/.
