    • It is estimated that around 100,000 sharps related injuries occur each year in the NHS alone. If you add on the incidents in private hospitals and care homes, then this amounts to a staggering total of incidents. It is the second most common injury in the NHS after musculoskeletal problems, which are often caused by lifting heavy objects of course.
    • A sharp is a needle, blade, scalpel or other sharp medical device that is needed in healthcare but which can also potentially injure workers. Sharps injuries are caused by the instrument penetrating the skin. This is also sometimes called a per cutaneous injury. It can happen when sharps are being stored, prepared, used or disposed of.
    • Though the injury itself may be painful, it is rarely the main problem. The main risk is a potential exposure to pathogens – germs – that may have been on the equipment because they were contaminated by the blood of another person – usually a patient. There are a number of blood-borne viruses that cause concern and they are:
    • Hepatitis B (HBV)
    • Hepatitis C (HCV)
    • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) – which causes Acquired Immune Deficiency (AIDS)
