What precautions should I take for self-protection?
If you must assist an injured person where blood/body fluids are involved, you should practice precautions. You
should place a barrier between you and the other person's potentially infectious body fluids (Universal
Why are these precautions important?
There are two major diseases that can be transferred from blood/body fluids: Hepatitis B and HIV/AIDS. It is
impossible to know if an individual may have one of these diseases so it is advisable to treat everyone the same,
as though their blood/body fluids could transmit disease.
How are blood/body fluids passed from one person to another person?
These are the ways that blood/body fluids may be passed:
*Through open areas on the skin
*By splashing in the eye or nose
*Through the mouth
How should I handle an incident with blood/body fluids?
1. WEAR DISPOSABLE LATEX GLOVES when handling blood/body fluids directly (cuts, bites, nosebleeds, or
contaminated surfaces/equipment). Latex gloves are usually available at drug stores. However, you can use
plastic sandwich/storage bags, plastic car trash bags or plastic bread bags in case you do not have access to
gloves. Your employer must provide appropriate personal protective equipment, while you are at work.
2. Use a large pad of clean cloth or other absorbent material (tissues, napkins, paper towels, clothing,
newspapers) to minimize the possibility of the blood/body fluids soaking through to your skin. Encourage the
other person to help take care of him/herself if possible. Even young children can hold tissues under their
nosebleed, while you put on your gloves. Or, they can apply an absorbent pad to an injury, while you put on your
3. Cover the area with a bandage, if possible, once the bleeding has stopped. This will minimize further exposure
to other individuals.
4. If a surface is contaminated with blood/body fluids (floor, tabletops, sink, etc,) KEEP YOUR GLOVES ON
and mop up the fluid with disposable absorbent material (tissues, napkins, paper towels), then wash the area with
soap and water. Next use an approved disinfectant, which should be bactericidal. You can make your own
solution of 1 part chlorine bleach to 10 parts water; this solution is only effective for 24 hours so it must be made
up fresh every day. Dispose of cleaning materials and gloves in a sealed plastic bag.
5. WASH YOUR HANDS, as soon as possible, with soap and water. Use lots of scrubbing motions to remove
any disease germs from your skin.
Remember the idea is to put a barrier or protective layer between you and the blood/body fluids. Reassure the
individual that you are trying to protect both of you from each other's germs. You will not only be a caregiver, but
also an excellent role model by following the above steps.
Your employer should have a Bloodborne Pathogen Policy and Procedure Manual. Make sure you are aware of
where it is located and be familiar with the contents.
