CARVALHO, Carmem Milena Rodrigues Siqueira et al. Biosecurity aspects related to the use of laboratory coats by health professionals: a literature review. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.2, pp.355-360. ISSN 0104-0707.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072009000200020.

This study aimed to analyze the literature published in regards to biosecurity aspects of the use of laboratory coats by health professionals. This is a narrative review of the literature published from 1991 to 2008. MEDLINE, LILACS, and SciELO were the databases used. Twenty-two articles were selected and were grouped for analysis with emphasis given to: cross infections caused by lab coats; contaminated lab coats; bacterial flora on health professionals' lab coats. The lab coat was found to be a source of contamination and to be equipment for individual protection in infectious disease. Therefore educational campaigns are necessary in order to orientate health professionals about the use of lab coats. 

Palavras-chave : Infection; Biosecurity; Prevention.
