Protecting Those Who Serve & Protect Us

Needlestick Hand Safety

The opioid crisis is not breaking news. According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, drug-related overdoses are the leading cause of accidental death in the U.S.  Death rates now rival those of AIDS during the 1990s. Overdoses from heroin, heroin laced with fentanyl and other opioids are now killing more and more people every year and this crisis is affecting more than drug addicts.

The percentage of abusers choosing to inject their opioid of choice hovers around 25% and growing. First responders, police officers, border patrol, correctional officers,  firefighters and EMTs and on the front lines of the growing opioid overdose epidemic constantly face the danger of needlesticks.

The hazards of hypodermic needlesticks are clear – just one puncture of the skin can transmit Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, or PointGuard® Ultra Needlestick Resistant Hand ProtectionHIV (AIDS).
