Abstract

Health-care workers are exposed to risk of HIV infection. Blood and body fluids containing blood are the most important sources of HIV and the major risk for health-care workers occurs by incidental parenteral contact with these fluids. Therefore, the risk can be minimized by taking care to prevent injuries and by using protective barriers for mucous membranes and skin. However, the number of cases reported in literature with occupational HIV infection is extremely low.
