In case of injury or mucosal projection involving blood or other biological fluids, it is important to assess the situation as quickly as possible in order to take adequate preventive measures.
We consider an exposure to blood or biological fluids in the following cases:
- Breaking of the skin barriers, such as needle sting, cut or bite
- Projection on a mucous membrane (eyes, mouth)
- Contact of skin already injured (wounds, abrasions, dermatitis)
Contact of biological liquids on healthy skin
is not considered to present a risk.
