Needle stick Injuries in healthcare workers can have serious consequences. However, these are completely preventable and can be eliminated by improving workplace practices.
This behavior change program was designed to initiate conversations on this often ignored, serious problem that affects the lives of thousands of healthcare workers. To help hospitals understand the gravity of the situation and to take serious steps towards preventing accidental injuries, we created a film that told the story of a young nurse at the threshold of her life, who was a victim of a needlestick injury that changed the course of her life and plunged her life into darkness. The realistic documentary style narration was effective in converting several hospitals into users of safely needles that protected their staff.
