Compton Union, West Virginia- The health care industry continues to advance technologically. Today, the average individual is living much 10nger because researchers, doctors and other health care professionals are making available many preventative drugs and surgical procedures. The medical profession has worked together with both its professionals and patients to promote and provide adequate, safe health care. Along with these efforts, legislation is also being passed by state governments across the United States'to enhance a health care worker's safety. The West Virginia Legislature recognizes the importance of maintaining safety among our medical professionals. During the 2000 Legislative Session, it passed a bill creating a Needlestick Injury Prevention Program. This program will be implemented in hospitals, nursing homes, public health departments and home health agencies, which includes those staffed by public employees. Under this program, rules also will be proposed by the director of the Division of Health on or before July 1, 2000 Facilities will be required, as a condition of licensure certification or operation, to minimize the risk of needlestick and sharps' injuries to health" care workers. In developing these rules, the director will take iato consideration the most recent guidelines of the occupational safety and health administration that relate to the prevention of needlestick and sharps' injuries. With the overwhelming number of needlestick incidents being reported around the country, many legislators and members of the h cye mm,u/t eo. supp0n bel nm, The American Nurses Association: released information stating that health care workers sustain 800,000 to I million needlesticks and sharps' injuries every year." These injuries result in up to 5,000 new cases of health care workers with HIV, Hepatitis C or Hepatitis B because of oceupational injuries. Studies also indicate that more than 20 blood.berne pathogens have been transmitted through contaminated' sharps or'needlestick wounds. Now that we have the technology to protect our registered nurses and other health care workers from deadly needlestick injuries, we must encourage usage of these new REVIVAL Revival will be held at Indian products. With the passage of the Needlestick Injury Prevention Program, I believe we are one step closer to eliminating these unnecessary, yet deadly risks.
