Neither of BD's so-called safety syringes -- its Safety-Lok(TM) or SafetyGlide(TM) --are in compliance with the spirit of the safe needle laws now being enacted around the country, said Shaw. According to Kaiser Permanente internal documents, the Safety-Lok(TM) actually caused an increase in the number of accidental needle stick injuries in a yearlong study by the big California HMO, said Shaw. Moreover, he said, BD even warns SafetyGlide(TM) users on the carton about the possibility of fluid splatter, and numerous needle assembly separations have been reported during activation of the device. The design flaws of the Safety-Lok(TM) and SafetyGlide(TM) are uncorrectable and insurmountable, said Shaw.
Why do you allow yourself to be in denial? Vanishpoint allows the user to use their normal technique. The needle retracts from the patient automatically. BD's inferior product looks different from a conventional syringe, and requires a change of technique. Ask any healthcare worker. If they were free to choose and not bound by GPOs, then they would choose Vanishpoint, hands down.
You're LYAO because RVP is down 70% and BD is up 100% since the settlement.
You're LYAO because those overseas gifts/sales have miniscule margins and they needed the business just to keep the plant running.
You're LYAO because RVP still hasn't received a dime in royalties from the commies.
You're LYAO because RVP - even if they were the sole reason the legislation got passsed - is still a loser.
But mainly you're LYAO because you're an idiot and don't know any better.
I'm LMAO at the $100 million BD had to give RTI.
I'm LMAO at the fact that RTI got the US government to pass the Safety Needle Legislation, and BD rode RTI's coattails with the pathetic SafeteyLok.
I'm LMAO at the fact the at RTI was awarded a federal contract to supply 10s of millions of syringes under the Global HIV initiative, not BD.
that you picked the wrong race horse. It's clear to the market that RVP is nearly RIP. I feel sorry that you don't even have an RVP message board for posting and have to come around here. Hope you didn't invest the kids education money in RVP else they are going to be scrubbing toilets.
