  1. Anxiety and perception of risk of HIV and hepatitis B infection among health-care workers reporting accidental exposures to blood and other body fluids.

    Article - En anglais

    We noticed considerable variation in anxiety among staff reporting blood exposure incidents and therefore undertook a study to investigate this.

    We studient 100 consecutive staff reporting blood or other body fluid exposures to the Occupational Health Unit.

    The nurse seeing the staff member administered a questionnaire about worries related to the incident, knowledge of HIV and hepatitis B transmission risks, perception of risk from the particular incident and predicted reaction of others that would be told.

    Level of anxiety was recorded on a visual analogue scale.

    Staff were then given information and counselling as usual, and asked to re-attend after a week, when the questionnaire was repeated.
