The BD Vacutainer Push Button Blood Collection Set with Pre-Attached Holder helps guard against costly, potentially debilitating needlesticks, allowing caregivers to focus on superior patient care.
- Safety – The patient needle offers split-second protection from injuries and the pre-attached holder minimizes the risk of accidental needlestick injuries from the holder needle.
- Compliance – With single-use mandate by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) that prohibits re-use of blood tube holders.
- Efficiency – Pre-assembly of the device saves time by consolidating the blood collection process.
As with the current BD Vacutainer® Push Button Blood Collection Set (PBBCS), the new product’s in-vein activation of the safety device provides split-second protection against accidental needlestick injuries (NSIs). One hospital medical center reported an 88% reduction in the incidence of NSIs involving butterfly needles with zero NSIs in the final 21 months of the period following the implementation of the BD Vacutainer® Push Button Blood Collection Sets.
