SOL-CARE™ Safety Needle and Needlestick Injury Prevention
Needlestick injury is a major risk for healthcare professionals using needles and sharps placing them at risk for blood-borne pathogens. Safety needles and other safety injection devices have been shown to create a 4-fold reduction in these types of needlestick injuries1. Sol-Millennium’s® safety and blunt fill needles help to minimize the risk of accidental needlestick injuries.
SOL-CARE™ Safety Needles are designed to help prevent needlestick injuries
To lower the risk of accidental injury after medication administration every needle is equipped with a pivoting safety shield mechanism that locks in place. In addition, there are two methods of safety shield activation that keep fingers and hands behind and away from the needle tip.
- Two options for protective arm activation: hard surface activation and thumb activation
- Simple one-handed safety shield mechanism
- Audible click indicates safety mechanism is secure and locked in place
- Hubs, protective shields, and packaging are color-coded for immediate identification of needles gauges
- Protective arm does not obstruct visualization of injection site
- Bevel-up needle allows for low-angle injections
- Compatible with all standard Luer Lock and Luer Slip Tip syringes
