To briefly change tracks from COVID-19, I am looking for national benchmarking data on sharps and needlestick injuries. If someone wants to share institutional data (over the past few years, for example), that would be great. You can e-mail directly to me. Is there data that is broken down into different categories (eg. mechanism of injury, device used, job type - provider/nurse/PCA, etc.)? What would be good sources of national data?

Thank you!
