In recent years, safety precautions, such as handling all blood and body fluids as if infectious, using sharps safety devices, and disposing of sharps properly, have decreased exposures to bloodborne pathogens. However, exposures still occur, often because healthcare workers do not follow these guidelines on a consistent basis.
