Massachusetts passes safety needle legislation:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Massachusetts has become the 16th US state to pass safety needle legislation, aimed at preventing accidental needlestick injuries to healthcare employees. Many states have been slow to adopt the legislation with the American Hospital Association expressing opposition to the legislation as it fears the prospect of the Occupational Health and Safety Association gaining too much authority in hospitals (see Clinica No 915, p 8). There are an estimated one million needlestick injuries in the US each year.
