Medical staff are in a period of serious occupational exposure

In 1984, the Lancet magazine reported for the first time in the world that a British medical worker was infected with human T-cell type III virus due to a needlestick injury, which caused a lot of international research. Since then, there have been more and more cases of HIV infection among medical staff due to occupational exposure. China is a country with a high incidence of hepatitis B. The incidence of HBV infection is about 60%, and about 130 million people are carriers of hepatitis B virus. At the same time, AIDS has also become a popular trend in China, and it has become the main category of biological occupational hazards for medical personnel. Although there are no official reports of HBV, HCV, and HIV infection due to sharp injuries in the country, there are media reports. Medical staff are in a period of serious occupational exposure.

The most important way for medical staff to have occupational exposure to blood-borne pathogens is sharp injuries. Occupational exposure to blood-borne pathogens caused by sharp injuries will not only damage the health of medical staff, but also cause different psychological changes: if the occupational exposure of blood-borne pathogens such as HBV, HCV, HIV, etc. is clearly occurring, the exposure is negative. Psychology usually lasts for many years; if the pathogen is not clear, the psychological burden of the exposed person during the observation period will be heavier, worrying all day, seriously affecting the quality of life. In addition, from an economic point of view, it can bring great economic losses and waste of health resources. Some researchers have analyzed the situation of more than 600,000 needlestick injuries in the US medical and health industry in 2004 and found that the United States needs to spend about 188.5 million US dollars each year. Therefore, it is of great socioeconomic significance to take targeted measures to prevent the occurrence of sharp injuries.
