#IVTEAM #Intravenous literature: Liu, X., Sun, X., van Genugten, L., Shi, Y., Wang, Y., Niu, W. and Richardus, J.H. (2014) Occupational exposure to blood and compliance with standard precautions among health care workers in Beijing, China. AJIC: American Journal of Infection Control. 42(3), p.e37-e38.


This cross-sectional survey assessed both risk and prevention of health care workers to bloodborne virus transmission in 2 hospitals in Beijing. The identified discrepancy between the high level of occupational blood exposure and suboptimal compliance with standard precautions underscores the urgent need for interventions to enhance occupational safety of health care workers in China.
