Healthcare Workers' Attitudes and Compliance with Universal Precautions: Gender, Occupation, and Specialty Differences
Preview not available

Abstract

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.
