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.

You can correspond with them and read their source materials at www.
