The CDC’s “One and Only One” safe injection campaign is accepted by public health professionals globally but the desire for a safe jet injection needless device are still very much desired by many as a means to prevent accidental needlesticks and for other noble reasons. Some devices have been approved for limited use. A 100% safe jet injector may not be attainable so the public needs to learn what a safe injection is and isn’t.
My awareness has been raised! A while back, a doctor applied a topical gel before giving me injections. A long Q-tip was dipped into plastic jar, then rubbed on my skin, then re-dipped into the jar (which I’m sure will be used with other patients). It happened quickly and I didn’t think about it until later. By applying the concepts learned from “the one and only one” campaign, I realize that a new Q-tip should have been use instead of double-dipping the old one and mixing my DNA into the gel.
