Safe In Common Chairperson Dr. Mary Foley takes the pledge to raise awareness for needlestick
Safe in Common Chairperson Dr. Mary Foley, PhD, RN, former President of the American Nursing Association and a U.S. leader for needlestick prevention believes Safe in Common offers a unique opportunity to raise awareness of needlestick injuries. She thinks there is more that needs to be done despite advances made in needlestick prevention. She has seen fellow coworkers become ill and even die due to occupational injuries.
