  • Description:
    Injection safety guidelines from CDC -- Unsafe Injection Practices and Disease Transmission -- Three things every provider needs to know about injection safety -- How can healthcare providers ensure that injections are performed correctly?

    The One & Only Campaign is a public health effort to eliminate unsafe medical injections.

    Although safe injection practices represent very basic infection control measures, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to identify and investigate outbreaks associated with poor practices. Breakdowns in proper infection control have involved providers reusing needles, syringes or single-dose medication vials, all of which are meant for one patient and one procedure. These breaches can cause irreparable damage, exposing patients to bloodborne illnesses such as hepatitis and HIV, and to life- threatening bacterial infections.

    This material was developed by CDC. The One & Only Campaign is made possible by a partnership between the CDC Foundation and Lilly USA, LLC.
