Management of Possible Accidents Broken needle.


This may result from the poor quality of the needle or eroded base of the needle, from too strong muscle spasm, or a sudden movement of the patient when the needle is in place, or from withdrawing a stuck needle.

The needle body is broken during manipulation and the broken part is below the skin surface or a little bit out of the skin surface.


When it happens, the patient should be told to keep calm to prevent the broken needle from going deeper into the body. If the broken part protrudes from the skin, remove it with forceps or fingers. If the broken part is at the same level of the skin, press the tissue around the site until the broken end is exposed, then remove it with forceps. If it is completely under the skin, surgery should be resorted with the help of x-ray to find out the exact location of the broken needle.


To prevent accidents, careful inspection of the quality of the needle should be made. Prior to the treatment, reject the needles which are not in conformity with the requirements specified. The needle body should not be inserted into the body completely, and a little part should be exposed outside the skin. On needle insertion, if it is bent, the needle should be withdrawn immediately. Never try to insert a needle violently.
