  1. Percutaneous blood exposure among Danish doctors : Exposure mechanisms and strategies for prevention.

    Article - En anglais

    The objective of this study was to describe the mechanisms of percutaneous blood exposure (PCE) among doctors and discuss rational strategies for prevention.

    Data were obtained as part of a nation-wide questionnaire survey of occupational blood exposure among hospital employed doctors in Denmark.

    The doctors were asked to describe their most recent PCE, if any, within the previous 3 months.

    Detailed information on the instruments, procedures, circumstances and mechanisms that caused the PCE was obtained.

    Of 9375 doctors, 6256 (67%) responded, and 6005 questionnaires were eligible for analysis.

    Of 971 described PCE the majority were caused by suture needles (n=483), IV-catheter-stylets (n=94), injection needles (n=75), phlebotomy needles (n=53), scalpels (n=45), arterial blood sample needles (n=41) and bone fragments (n=23).

    Inattentiveness was the most common cause, contributing to 30.5% of all PCE.

    Use of fingers rather than instruments was a major cause of injury in surgical specialties and was a contributing cause of 36.9% PCE on suture needles.

    Common contributing causes when fingers were used (n=199) were poor space in (30.2%) or view of (18.6%) the operation field.

    It was often argued that instruments were not practical to use or might harm the tissue.

    Of 689 PCE in surgical specialties, 17.4% were inflicted by colleagues.

    Up to 53. (...)
