risk to immune compromised HIV+ clinic worker
Jun 15, 2005
In the case of a substantially immune compromised HIV+ clinic worker, do you advocate exclusion from assignments which frequently encounter yet-to-be-diagnosed contagious/infectious diseases such as Tuberculosis, hepatitis, etc? Do you know of a published piece treating this subject?
Response from Ms. Breuer
In healthcare settings, I must defer to healthcare providers. The best source on this is the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care. They deal with this kind of question every day.
