  1. Reduced frequency of percutaneous injuries in surgeons : 1993 versus 1988.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To compare the frequency of occupational injuries reported by surgeons in 1993 with similar data obtained in 1988.

    Design and setting 

    Two point-prevalence studies of percutaneous injuries of surgeons practicing in tertiary and non-tertiary-care hospitals in the New York metropolitan area.

    Participants 

    A total of 202 surgeons and surgical residents surveyed in 1988 and 347 surveyed in 1993 (67 and 65% of the eligible groups, respectively), including 85 surgeons in 1993 (71% of the eligible group) who had participated in the 1988 survey.

    Outcome measures 

    Yearly frequency of percutaneous injuries, and injury frequency per 1000 operative hours.

    Results 

    There was a significant decrease in the frequency of reported percutaneous injuries over the 5-year period.

    For all surgeons, the mean number of yearly injuries decreased from 5.5±14.4 SD to 2.1±6.0 SD (P¾0.001).

    Paired analysis of the subgroup of 85 surgeons who participated in both surveys showed a nearly identical decrease (P=0.001).

    Significant decreases were observed in general surgeons, specialists and residents.

    Conclusions 

    During the 5 years studied, surgeons practicing in the greater New York metropolitan area reported a significant reduction in the frequency of occupationally associated percutaneous injuries.

    The reduced risk of percutaneous injuries should substantially lower the rate of acquired infections from blood-borne pathogens.
