Safety Needles Keep Everyone Safe
When you finish monitoring your blood sugar or performing other diabetes management tasks, you do not want to worry about your equipment hurting someone. A safety pen needle is one step you can take that ensures your needles are safely out of the way, whether you have them stored in a drawer, cabinet, purse, or briefcase. Further, safety needles mean you can use your equipment without fear of harming yourself.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need safety needles?
Any time you use a sharp, you risk puncturing yourself and any person helping you. If the needles are not disposed of properly, a stranger can jab themselves by accident if they are not careful when disposing of trash. Unprotected needles can puncture a person from either end and can transmit bacteria.
Safety needles have a protective sheath that makes it almost impossible for the end of the needle that goes into a diabetes pen to puncture anyone. Additionally, ADW Diabetes offers safety needles that provide the same glycemic control as longer needles and eliminate the need for the pinch technique which can lead to accidental punctures.
Are safety needles for insulin pens harder to use?
No. Most patients find safety needles easier to use because of the protective sheath. Anxiety over an open needle can make many patients unsteady, which can increase the likelihood of an accidental puncture. It is important to follow instructions for using pen needles.
Does ADW Diabetes ship safety pen needles?
Yes. In fact, ADW Diabetes can ship all your diabetes supplies to you. If you order more than $89 in diabetes management equipment, you may qualify for free standard shipping.
