Needlestick prevention award


“The award has been designed to reward and recognize health-care institutions that are committed to providing a safer environment to their patients and staff through the use of safety-engineered devices and programs,” said Kevin Egesborg, manager of healthcare worker safety for BD Canada, the company that presented the award, which also comes with a $500 grant to be used toward further health-care safety education.

From 2006/07 to 2007/08, the number of needle-stick injuries at OSMH dropped from 19 to 10. OSMH is one of 18 hospitals across Canada to win the award in 2008.
