As healthcare workers, we all face a wide range of hazards on the job, including blood and body fluid exposures, needlesticks, slips and falls, musculoskeletal injuries related to lifting and repositioning patients, and even workplace violence.

While healthcare remains the largest and fastest-growing sector of the U.S. economy, employing approximately 17 million workers, virtually everyone in the industry is susceptible to hazards on the job, including nurses, physicians, therapists, and many other dedicated professionals. These injuries occur every single day of the year… in hospitals, nursing homes, dental offices, out-patient surgery centers, birthing centers, trauma centers, home healthcare, and countless other medical venues around the globe. Our mission is to help reduce the number and severity of those injuries.

I had my first one a few months ago. It was my first night on trauma and I was doing a central line and managed to stab myself with the scalpel while trying to blot the blood up so I could see where I was. I was pretty shaken the rest of the night, even after talking to the guy's wife who said he's clean.”
