Abstract

Individuals in the nursing field are at the highest risk for needlestick injuries, and there are cases where nurses have experienced it repeatedly. This research is the first to empirically verify person approach factors influencing repeated needlestick injuries among nurses through a countrywide survey. Of 21,890 nurses, 3,114 (14.2%) had experienced repeated needlestick injuries. When nurses with ≥ 10 years of clinical experience were compared to those with < 10 years of experience, the odds ratio (OR) for repeated needlestick injuries was 2.798. "Maleness" (OR = 1.531), "not having taken a basic nursing education safety class" (OR = 1.346), "conducting recapping" (OR = 1.117), "not carrying a container to dispose of needles" (OR = 1.086), "recognizing that one is always pressed for time in their duties" (OR = 1.063), "giving a divided injection at the time of blood collection"(OR = 1.058), a "work mistake" on the error-type scale (OR = 1.051), and optimism "Kirakusa" (OR = 0.984) were factors influencing repeated needlestick injuries among nurses with ≥ 10 years of clinical experience. It was found that it is necessary to take measures focused on individual characteristics to prevent such injuries in hospitals.
