Needlestick Incidents

61% of needlestick injuries occur only seconds after the device is removed from the vein and before activation of the safety feature is deployed. Because holder-based safety solutions require a hard surface for activation of their safety mechanism, the risk of both needlestick injury and exposure to bloodborne pathogens increase.

Did you realize that accidental needlestick injuries account for an estimated 86% of all occupationally related infectious disease transmissions and that 2 million needlestick injuries (per year) result in hepatitis B, hepatitis C and/or HIV?

Incident no. 1

A nurse received a needlestick injury from a known end-stage AIDS patient at a small hospital in Nevada in 1997. Nine months after the needlestick, she began to exhibit symptoms and was diagnosed with HIV and HCV.


  • Her disability payments were reduced by 25% because she was not wearing gloves at the time of the needlestick.
  • As a divorced mother of two, she was forced to live on $18,749 per year.

Incident no. 2

A blood bank nurse of 13 years was exposed to blood through needlesticks and splatter to the hands and face on a routine basis. She was later diagnosed with HCV.


  • She required two liver transplants and a kidney transplant.
  • She required dialysis three times per week.
  • She estimates that her treatment costs were close to $1 million.

BD Vacutainer Eclipse blood collection needle FAQ

Q. Why must the pink safety shield on the BD Vacutainer Eclipse Blood Collection Needle be gently rotated back toward the holder?

A. The pink shield is gently rotated back so it doesn't obstruct your view during venipuncture and collection. The pink shield is attached to the needle to provide protection from accidental needlesticks. The shield is directly in line with the bevel of the needle and all collections are performed with the bevel in the "UP" position.

Q. What material is used to manufacturer needles for BD Vacutainer products?

A. The needles of the BD Vacutainer push button blood collection set, Vacutainer Safety-Lok blood collection sets and Vacutainer Eclipse@ blood collection needle are all made of stainless steel (grade 304).

Q. Will there be any change in my collection technique when using BD Vacutainer Eclipse blood collection needles?

A. No. The needle itself is the same BD PrecisionGlide needle that you are now using. The only difference is the added BD Eclipse safety shield, which provides protection from accidental needlestick injuries.
