    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: Needlestick Injuries Are Underreported by Health Care Workers
    Type: Title Slide

    Source: Harmony, 1993; Chiarello, 1992

    Speaker Notes:

    Based on various studies, researchers have documented that needlestick injuries are underreported by health care workers and the number of exposures could potentially be much higher (Hamory, 1983). Underreporting rates range between 40.4% and 53% for nurses, 92% for laboratory personnel, and 70% to 95% for physicians.
