We describe variations in healthcare workers' attitudes toward double gloving and reporting needlesticks, and in their readiness to comply with double gloving and hepatitis B vaccine. Differences related to occupation, specialty, and gender have implications for the need to tailor interventions for specific groups of healthcare workers to improve compliance with Universal Precautions.
