Safety Scalpels

One case is one too much!

On annual average in Germany, stab wounds and cuts from contaminated instruments infect:

  • 400 hospital staffs with Hepatitis B*
  • 75 hospital staffs with Hepatitis C*
  • 1 hospital staff with HIV*

The danger of needlestick and sharp instrument injuries is frequently underestimated. Many health professionals think that small cuts or needlestick injuries are harmless and of no consequence, but they constitute serious hidden health risks for doctors and nurses in hospitals.
