Abstract:

Ontario, like a number of other jurisdictions, has regulated the use of safety-engineered needles (SENs) to prevent needlestick injuries in the health-care sector. Yet records demonstrate that needlestick injuries have not substantially declined in the province. Case studies were carried out in three acute-care hospitals in Ontario to help stakeholders understand why needlestick injuries continue to occur and what might challenge and support further progress in this area. The findings from these case studies are included in this report.
