Self-Sealing Injection Site Bandage
The Inject-Safe Bandage is a non-latex membrane that seals when a needle is withdrawn from the injection site. It greatly reduces exposure to blood and fluids after an injection by providing a barrier that contains post-injection bleeding and protects the injection site under a sterile pad. To use the Inject-Safe Bandage?, the healthcare worker preps the injection site, removes the bandage from its sterile pouch, peals off the backing and applies the bandage to the patient’s skin. A needle is then injected through the center of the Inject-Safe Bandage? and removed without any body fluid or pathogens escaping. Immediately after withdrawing the needle, the self-sealing membrane prevents the patient’s blood from leaving the injection site.
