MIRANDA, Fernanda Moura D'Almeida et al. A contribution to occupational health: a guide on the exposure to biological fluids. Rev. esc. enferm. USP [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.4, pp. 1018-1022. ISSN 0080-6234. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0080-62342011000400033.
Health workers are exposed to occupational hazards at the workplace, among which we highlight the biological risk. Information and orientation should be provided regarding the conduct that workers are expected to follow in the case becoming exposed. Thus, this guide is intended to provide the elements to orient workers' conduct in cases of biological exposure, improving adherence to the monitoring protocol.
