With an ordinary IV, no needlestick, you're right. I typically am doing in-and-out IV's with a butterfly needle, so there is a needlestick risk for me until I cap it. Sorry for the mis-communication.
just to clarify again, you cannot get a needlestick from an inserted iv of ANY kind. there is NEVER a needle left in your skin. the needle is used to insert a plastic catheter and immediately removed. the ONLY thing left under your skin is a small, hollow plastic tube.
apricot, no such thing as an "in-and-out iv", i think you are referring to phelbotomy (drawing blood).
