How to Inject Safety Into Health Care With Self Care, The Yoga Nurse™ @theyoganurse #nurseup #nursefriendly #nursesweek

“Your self-care is the heart and soul of your health-care + wealth-care.”

This is the Yoga Nurse’s caring message for all Nurses. This Nurse’s Week, I thought it important to share my insightful interview on self-care safety with Dr. Mary Foley, former President of the American Nursing Association (ANA). She shares her expertise with us on Worker Safety and Safe In Common. 

What has been your experience with the general “culture” or perception by nurses and other healthcare professionals regarding needlestick safety?

In my experience, healthcare workers are focused on patient care. They are aware of needlestick risks, but they keep their worries about occupational injury in the background, so they can focus on giving the best care they can. That presents some danger to healthcare workers. Doctors, nurses, aids, lab technicians, housekeeping, and maintenance personnel are all at risk when sharps devices and delivery systems are not designed for maximum protection.
