[Victoria Nahum] I'm Victoria Nahum with important information that could save your life. After my stepson died from a healthcare associated infection, I knew I had to do something. Now I'm working with the "One and Only" campaign to promote safe injection practices. Reuse of needles and syringes has exposed thousands of people to serious infections. Before you get an IV or injection, ask your healthcare provider whether they always use one needle… one syringe and only one time. Go to oneandonlycampaign.org…that's oneandonlycampaign.org.
