Needle phobia is a medical condition that affects an estimated 20 to 23 percent of the population to the point where it causes them to avoid necessary medical care.
Some patients who suffer from needle phobia are passive in their dealings with the medical profession and many actually avoid necessary treatment completely.
There are rapidly growing fractions of cases of needle phobia that are simply the fear of needles resulting from one or more traumatic experiences.
For many needle phobia patients, the first traumatic experience was the unexpected and involuntary reaction of their body to a needle procedure compared to the needle procedure itself. It can often be very difficult to separate simple exaggerated fear of needles from the terrifying purely biological reaction that some people experience.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American health care workers suffer between 600,000 to 1 million needle sticks and other sharps injuries every year. Eighty percent of blood contacts occur through needle sticks, making this the most common cause of health care work-related exposure to blood borne pathogens. More than 20 pathogens could be transmitted through small amounts of blood.

Many times it is challenging and frustrating for nurses to locate a vein to start any IV procedure. This can be time-consuming and be additional cost by spending more time to start the medical procedure.
The J-Tip helps deliver medication in order to numb the area. Once the area is numb there is less anxiety to a patient making the IV insertion easier and saves time. Less time spent by the staff on a medical procedure will help reduce the overall cost.
The HCAHPS (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) survey is the first national, standardized, publicly reported survey of patients' perspectives of hospital care.
The survey asks adult patients selected at random to give feedback about topics, such as how well nurses and doctors communicated, how responsive hospital staff were to patient needs, how well the hospital managed patients' pain, and the cleanliness and quietness of the hospital environment.
One of the commonly asked questions is: "How Often Was Patient's Pain Well Controlled?"
By using our J-Tip Needle-Free Injection System the patient’s pain is reduced prior to a medical procedure utilizing an IV start.
