  1. Prevalence of hepatitis C infection in health care workers affiliated with a liver transplant center.

    Article - En anglais

    The risk of hepatitis C to liver transplantation health care workers has not been identified.

    We compared the occupational risk of hepatitis C in health care workers associated with liver transplantation with risk of health care workers affiliated with the same institutions but not involved in transplantations.

    Health care workers were recruited from 2 transplant centers.

    Participation was voluntary ; results were confidential.

    An occupational and health history questionnaire was completed and blood was donated for testing.

    Health care workers were categorized into 3 groups according to risk for hepatitis C infection : very high, high, and low risk.

    A total of 241 health care workers were recruited from 2 transplant centers.

    Fifty-nine percent (142/241) were female ; mean age was 38.7 years.

    Health care workers included : 48.5% (117/241) nurses, 24.9% (60/241) physicians, and 17% (42/241) laboratory personnel.

    The mean number of years in their occupation was 13.6 years (range<1 year to 38 years).

    Twenty-four percent (57/241) were categorized in a very high risk occupation for hepatitis C, 66% (168/241) in a high risk occupation, and 10.8% (26/241) in a low risk occupation.

    We conclude that health care workers associated with liver transplantation may be at a higher risk for hepatitis C when compared with health care workers not associated with transplantation.
