AANA Endorses CDC's Restatement of Safe Injection Practice Guidelines

In an effort to ensure clinicians are clear about CDC guidelines, the Agency is restating its position on the use of single-dose/single-use vials and also seeks to dispel inaccuracies being disseminated to healthcare providers.  The CDC's guidelines call for medications labeled as "single dose" or "single use" to be used for only one patient.

As a founding member of the Safe Injection Practices Coalition (SIPC), the AANA has endorsed the CDC's restatement of these principles.  Use the links below to access the CDC's position in its entirety.
