What precautions do medical professionals take to protect themselves from the AIDS virus?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

We use "universal precautions" to protect ourselves form bloodborne diseases, such as HIV and hepatitis. These precautions protect in both directions infected patient to health care worker and vice versa. You can read about universal precautions on many Web sites, including the World Health Organization's site: http://www.who.int./hiv/topics/precautions/universal/en/
