CDC Provides New Resources to Alleviate Unsafe Injection Practices

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has introduced new resources for its One & Only Campaign — created in 2009 to alleviate unsafe injection practices. The campaign aims to eradicate outbreaks from unsafe medical injections by raising awareness among patients and health care providers about proper practices. The new resources include a table of select recent outbreaks and patient notification events that could have been prevented, according to the CDC, and an infographic illustrating the four best practices health care providers should follow to ensure safe injections.
