Award-Winning Safe Injection Practices Video – How to Do It Right

Injection Safety Video


1. A Patient's Story
2. Inside the Pain Management Clinic
3. Inside the OR
4. Dispelling Injection Safety Myths

The Safe Injection Practices video for healthcare providers is designed to remind healthcare providers to consistently utilize basic, evidence-based, common sense precautions to protect patients and themselves.

The video opens with a personal story from Evelyn McKnight who contracted Hepatitis C virus when her healthcare providers did not adhere to safe injection practices. The viewer is then presented with three scenarios in three settings where medications are prepared and administered: an operating room, an oncology clinic, and a pain management clinic. The viewer is taken through potential errors that could occur in medication handling or injection preparation or administration. Each scenario ends with a summary of steps that can and should be taken to assure safe care. A fourth segment concludes the video by outlining and correcting myths and misperceptions that healthcare providers may have about safe injection practices.
