NeedleSmart Devices Used at My Nurses Life
My Nurses Life (MNL) works with thousands of nurses from a variety of UK healthcare providers, ensuring they pass the NMC OSCE first time. They also train overseas nurses and return to practice nurses, many on sponsorships to join the UK NMC register to practice nursing in the UK.
My Nurses Life was recently given a NeedleSmart Pro device to use to help with the training of their student nurses.
“We are delighted that NeedleSmart has given us one of their fantastic needle devices so that we can train our students in their use,” said Dalya Titus, the lead assessor at MNL.
“It is known that three million needlestick injuries occur globally each year, including 100,000 in the UK, and this device will completely eliminate that risk,” she explained.
MNL train nurses from the Commonwealth and right around the world and also UK nurses who have left the health sector and are wanting to return to practice, so they can acquire the necessary qualification to obtain employment.
Dalya, who moved to the UK in 2006 from Kerala in India, said, “We have already started training our pre-registered nurses in using the device. It is a very simple and highly effective appliance to use and I have no doubt that hospitals and nursing homes will adopt NeedleSmart in the very near future as well as GP surgeries and other medical practitioners”.
It is estimated that 140 million injections will be administered in the UK vaccination programme to deal with the Covid 19 virus and billons globally.
Helen Romnes, owner of MNL said “We train injection administration and the device is now an integral part of that training also keeping our classrooms safe.
“We have always been in the vanguard of nurse training for the Nursing and Midwifery Council exam, the OSCE, and introducing the NeedleSmart device is a no-brainer as it protects medical staff and patients from injuries and infection.
“It is also an environmentally-friendly product as the plastic syringe body can be recycled and used again instead of being incinerated.
’They are really neat and attractive devices that would not look out of place in anyone’s home and many diabetics will welcome it.
“We are a local company, as are the manufacturers of the NeedleSmart device, so it is great that we are able to showcase their invention,” she added.
NeedleSmart are thrilled to have been able to work with MNL and are pleased to hear how much they love using the NeedleSmart Pro device and reaping its benefits.
