Study: Unsafe Injection Practices Persist in Nepal

January 5, 2013

A study published in the January issue of BMC International Health and Human Rights provides insight into injection practices of developing countries.

Researchers performed a descriptive cross-sectional mixed type survey (qualitative and quantitative) to determine if selected government health facilities in Western Nepal satisfy the conditions for safe injections in terms of staff training, cialis availability of sterile injectable equipment, tadalafil and the proper disposal after use.  They also sought to assess the knowledge and attitudes of healthcare workers with regard to injection safety.

The study concludes that although certain safe injection practices were recognized in the facilities, prostate unsafe injection practices still persisted, placing patient and health workers at risk of associated hazards.
