Preventing Bloodborne Infections: Preventing Transmission, Protecting Yourself

OVERVIEW:

One effect of the AIDS epidemic was an intensified scrutiny of infection control practices throughout American and world healthcare, particularly practices relating to the transmission of bloodborne pathogens, such as HIV and the hepatitis B and hepatitis C viruses. After intense study by both the CDC and OSHA, new recommendations and mandates brought many changes in healthcare practice to help prevent the spread of these bloodborne infections.

This is the second of three programs on preventing bloodborne infections, and it will examine the measures you can take to prevent the spread of bloodborne pathogens in the healthcare environment, as well as how to protect yourself in the healthcare workplace.
