Abstract:

This study was a quasi-experimental design to assess the effect of a Web-based information system on the occupational exposure to blood and body fluids (BBFs) among health care workers (HCWs). The outcome was the number of exposure incidents with BBFs among HCWs in both hospital A (intervention) and hospital B (control). The findings showed that the implementation of the Web-based information system about infection prevention and control in hospital A decreased exposure incidents with BBFs among the HCWs (P < .001).
