Needle and lancet giants BD has a fab new needley thing called an Autoshield, the main point of which is to ensure no handling (or seeing) of insulin pen needles. It’s aimed at carers — so parents, or for older people who whose carers need to do injections for them, or for people in carehomes where a member of staff may have to administer injections. If you are delivering the injection, you don’t have to see or touch any sharps. Pretty helpful for needlephobes too.
