Topic Overview: Needle stick injuries from various sources are a significant problem in healthcare institutions. These needle stick injuries have various causes, including improper use of devices, incorrect suturing and poorly equipped procedure trays. These problems are compounded by the lack of compliance from the healthcare worker, improper reporting and inappropriate treatment of needle stick injuries. Employers can reduce the incidence of exposure from needle sticks. This presentation will discuss means to reduce the incidence of needle sticks, the latest treatment of needle stick injuries, effective monitoring and improved staff education on needle stick injuries. A case-based educational approach will be used to emphasize the key concepts. Some of the innovations from the Sinai Health System will be presented. 


  1. Describe the incidence of needle stick injuries.
  2. Explain the techniques to reduce needle stick injuries.
  3. Review proper suture procedure.
  4. Discuss the proper treatment of needle stick injuries.
