  1. Fulltext. Temporal association between implementation of universal precautions and a sustained, progressive decrease in percutaneous exposures to blood.

    Article - En anglais


    To evaluate whether implementation of universal precautions was temporally associated with a decrease in reported parenteral exposures to blood, we analyzed data on self-reported parenteral injuries that were prospectively collected at the Clinical Center, National Institutes of Health (Bethesda, MD), from 1985 through 1991.

    We also assessed whether implementation of universal precautions, in concert with initiation of a program of postexposure chemoprophylaxis with zidovudine, was associated with decreased time to reporting of occupational exposures.
