Accidents happen. We all know that, but what we don’t know is if someone’s blood is infected with a dangerous disease. Diseased blood looks the same as healthy blood, which is why we need to be extra careful when it comes to handling it. There is no place that we can say accidents happen the most. Accidents happen in the office, at school, on an airplane, a cruise ship, etc., and you can never be over-prepared for a blood spill.
It is a perfectly normal day in the office. Everything seems to be going right. Orders are going out the door on time, there have been no customer complaints in a few weeks and the staff is looking forward to great weather this weekend.
In order to fully understand infection control, you must first understand which body fluids are actually infectious. What first pops into many peoples minds is blood. Of course blood can be infectious, but it does not stop there.
