Safety Device Protects Workers from Needlesticks

 

June 30, 2006

Combining a closed waste disposal basin and temporary sharps holder in one convenient safety product, the BackStop helps protect healthcare workers from exposure to blood-borne pathogens and needle-related injuries.

Features include: large durable basin that accommodates 500 ml of fluid waste and prevents spilling of liquid waste; particulate-free, die-cut sponge that provides easy bin access of a syringe while maintaining a closed environment; double-sided adhesive patch that promotes stability during use; and more.
