Safe Injection Practices

Unsafe injection practices place patients/residents and healthcare providers at risk to transmit bloodborne pathogens, including hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Safe injection practices are a key part of Standard Precautions that provide protocols to perform injections, and are aimed at maintaining basic levels of patient and resident safety and provider protections. 1 Click on a tab below to access resources specific to your healthcare facility.
