These types of complications occur during some issues as needle stick injuries. We make this report and study to check the knowledge which we have to given to those students or medical staff to take care of their lives and be careful during work ,this survey held in a hospital located in Mayo hospital Lahore, Pakistan. We conduct and prepare this report by examining health workers and medical students. We conduct this survey in form of question and answers. This report held in month of October-December 2015.We take 255 respondents for test and survey. In which ratio of medical students was 145 and 110 was health care workers. So we have seen that from 255 about 102 were those who experience positive results about needle stick injuries. Health workers were those who experience more needle stick injuries as compared to the medical students. Because health care workers do their duties for whole day as taking blood samples or give injections to patients. Mostly we have seen that these needle stick injuries occurred due to taking blood samples for testing or giving injections to patients as recommended by the doctors. When we ask them why these types of injuries occur, their answers was their careless behavior and deals a lot of people at a time, these type of mistakes occur. About 80% people from those who experience needle stick injuries were aware about complications occur with this but 21% of them were not aware as much. So we conclude it out as if occurs due to overburdening of work or dealing a lot of patients at a time. So proper knowledge, and practices are needed to avoid all these type of injuries. Key Words: Health workers, needle stick injuries, medical students, stress.
