By: March 28th, 2011 Email This Post Print This Post

You know that as a healthcare worker your risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens, such as hepatitis B, C, and HIV, is higher than other occupations. But recent reports of exposures to patients by accidentally or intentionally compromised infection control practices or just plain ignorance may have given you concern about your own health risks as a patient. Are you more concerned about acquiring a bloodborne infection as a healthcare worker or as a patient receiving care? Take the OSHA Healthcare Advisor Weekly Poll and let us know.
