injection safety

 Dear APSA member


The fifth Egyptian Patient Safety Standard is about injection safety and states the following:

"Single use injection devices are discarded after one time use to prevent healthcare-associated infections."

We need to produce an implementation solution for this standard as previously done with patient identification and hand hygiene.

The e-Forum is composed of a set of questions that will be put forward to APSA members covering the essential points regarding the patient safety standard.

Answers to these questions will form the core of the patient safety solution otherwise known as "Solutions Made Simple - SMS". Your responses will be shown on the e-Forum section of the APSA website.

Members are kindly requested to suggest new points that they see essential to have in the solution.

Looking forward towards your response and thank you for your cooperation in making hospitals safer for our patients.
