All health care workers are required to follow infection control practices and these are outlined in Policies of the institution. It does not make a difference if you have HIV, HEP C, etc. you still follow the guidelines that will help to prevent every patient from any potential infection, blood borne or otherwise.
I have searched everywhere for information on being HIV + and working in the medical field. I am a nurse and have been restricted from doing IV’s, Blood draws, etc. What are the rules?
