|RN in ICU
Feb 11, 2012
I'm an RN in an ICU and am HIV positive. I'm doing quite well and my numbers are good. I have not yet started meds. Lately I have been having some anxiety regarding working with infectious diseases like TB, VRE, MRSA, etc. Do you feel it is safe for me to be working in this environment? I do follow prescribed infection control practices.

You need to direct that questions to one of the physicians or nurses on this site.
