A seven-minute film on measures taken in the operating room and wards to avoid needlestick injuries has been uploaded onto the website of German industry association BVMed, and can be viewed at: http://tvservice.bvmed.de/tvangebot.php. Some 4.2 million staff are employed in the German health system, as well as countless cleaning staff, all of whom may be reasonably assumed to be exposed to the risk of needlesticks and consequent transfer of bloodborne disease. Industry estimates that here are half a million accidental needlesticks in Germany every year. The "Safety First Initiative" says that HBV is transferred in three out of every 1,000 sticks, AIDS in 3/1,000 and HCV in 30/1,000. Modern medtech products incorporating safety features can cut these risk levels.
