General Instructions For Needlestick and Human Blood / Secretion Exposure

A Baylor incident report needs to be filled out for exposures occurring at any institution.

Exposure to blood through needlesticks is an all too frequent occurrence. With each exposure you risk contracting hepatitis or HIV/AIDS. The best protection against blood borne exposure is being careful. If you are exposed from a needlestick, wash the area with soap and water and use povidone iodine (if not allergic to it). With mucous membrane exposure, rinse with large amounts of water.
