Intravenous news: Medpage Today report “With the stated goal of increasing injection safety, the CDC unveiled a new set of guidelines powered by a catchy phrase — “the four Es” and then worked to tailor a set of clunky descriptions phrase.

The “Es” in question are:

  • Epidemiologic surveillance of unsafe injection
  • Education
  • Enforcement of safe practices
  • Engineering devices to reduce risks

Among safe injection practices that help prevent the spread of disease, healthcare professionals should never administer medications from the same syringe or single-dose vial to multiple patients, nor should they enter a vial with a used syringe or needle, wrote Joseph Perz, DrPH, of the CDC, and co-authors online in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.”
