The movie Puncture reveals the untold true story of the enormous risks faced every day by nurses and healthcare workers exposed to dangerous and deadly bloodborne pathogens (Hepatitis B, C and HIV) through accidental needlestick injuries. Chris Evans plays the underdog attorney who takes on a medical device monopoly that sacrifices nurse and healthcare worker safety by preventing access to lifesaving needle innovations.

Online PR News – 06-January-2012 – – Millennium Entertainment announces the Jan. 2, 2012 DVD, Blu-Ray and digital release of Puncture, the controversial “one man against the system” legal thriller which reveals the untold true story of the enormous risks faced every day by nurses and healthcare workers exposed to dangerous and deadly bloodborne pathogens (Hepatitis B, C and HIV) through accidental needlestick injuries.

The classic “one person-against the odds” cautionary tale portrays the issues leading up to the passage of the U.S. Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act 2000 and the added protection under the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Act Administration (OSHA) and its Bloodborne Pathogens Standard. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 800,000 accidental needlestick injuries occur on an annual basis.

For the global healthcare worker industry and advocacy community, the DVD release of Puncture presents an opportunity to bring the urgency and passion of this real-life story into professional, educational and workplace environments. Portraying the daily hazards nurses and healthcare workers face, it further illustrates the underlying industry forces that restrict purchase and use of safer needle products.

Puncture film distributor Millennium Entertainment, which conducted a nursing and healthcare worker outreach campaign during the picture’s theatrical release, encourages interested government, healthcare advocacy, nursing organizations and schools to contact Vicky Eguia, 310.893.6289, directly to purchase DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital formats.

With a $28.99 DVD Standard Retail Price (SRP), $29.99 Blu-Ray SRP, $14.99 Standard Definition download and $19.99 High Definition download, special interest groups will also receive a free digital copy of the film with DVD purchase.
