Module 17: Biohazardous Substances
Produced by: Maxcom
Biohazardous substances are capable of causing infection or disease on exposure. Most of these substances are obtained either from human or animal fluids or body parts or contain micro-organisms in substances like vaccines. Many biohazardous substances are also present in diagnostic lab products. Although products are tested for HIV and other blood-borne micro-organisms, no test is 100% accurate and therefore all biohazardous substances must be handled and disposed of carefully. This session defines the types of bio-hazardous substances that healthcare employees are commonly exposed to during routine work. Important information about the proper handling of containers is outlined as well as the first aid procedures to follow when handling a person contaminated with a bio-hazardous substance.
