A book from the International Healthcare Worker Safety Center
Editors: Janine Jagger, M.P.H., Ph.D., and Jane Perry, M.A.
For 10 years, Advances in Exposure Prevention was a leading source for timely information on the prevention of occupational exposures to bloodborne pathogens. Now the International Healthcare Worker Safety Center at the University of Virginia has collected into one volume the many EPINet percutaneous injury reports, personal accounts of occupationally infected healthcare workers, and other articles of interest that were published in AEP, including a section dealing with legislation and policy.
With over 70 articles illustrated with figures, tables and photographs, Preventing Occupational Exposures to Bloodborne Pathogens is a valuable reference. It contains a wealth of practical information on reducing bloodborne exposures in the healthcare workplace and complying with OSHA standards, as well as research and extensive analysis of percutaneous injury data from a large network of U.S. hospitals (the EPINet data-sharing network). Articles cover a wide range of subjects, from using denominators to calculate needlestick injury rates to the legal implications of needlestick injuries.
