is blood splash injury to eye safe?
Mar 27, 2012

i was splashed in the face with bloody saline while cleaning a suction tube , is transmition rare due to saline mixture or still a chance? thank you

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

While this is a lower risk exposure, bloody body fluid contact with eyes is considered a possible risk. I'd suggest follow up with your employee health providers.
