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. In this course, the student reviews the basics of Standard Precautions, how to prevent sharps injuries and exposure to bloodborne pathogens, and how to comply with the requirements of the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act.
