Simple precautions to prevent injuries, Biology

When resheathing needles, simple precautions to prevent injuries are to:

1. use only one hand to scoop the cap

2. hold the sheath with a hemostat (suggested but will require hemostat with each procedure that requires anesthetic)

3. use a special plastic or disposable device that slips onto the sheath to protect fingers during resheathing (not available at the Faculty)

4. use a syringe stand, in which the sheath is held tightly within the stand, allowing the needle to be withdrawn and placed back into the sheath with one hand.

Do NOT pass sharp instruments or corrosive liquids over the patients' face. We have talked in detail about sterilization and infection control and as part of the operatory protocol. One last main aspect of operatory protocol is the management of wastes generated in the operatory.
