Workers with reasonably anticipated potential blood and body fluid exposure should, according to federal regulation, be offered vaccination for hepatitis B. Those previously vaccinated for hepatitis B should have documentation of hepatitis B surface antibody response to the vaccine.
Hepatitis B surface antibody testing should be carried out among previously vaccinated personnel without such documentation. Because hepatitis B surface antibody titers wane with time without compromising immunity, a negative hepatitis B surface antibody test several years following completion of vaccine does not provide evidence that an individual is a non-responder to the vaccine. Hepatitis B Information for Health Care Workers
Following percutaneous exposure to infected blood, risk of hepatitis C seroconversion among exposed healthcare workers ranges from 0 to 10%, with an average risk of 1.8%. Infection following mucocutaneous exposure appears to be much less common. Antibodies to HCV may be detected within 5 to 6 weeks of infection, and may persist regardless of whether virus is actively replicating. Most individuals have no acute symptoms.

handling policy, as defined, for patient care units, and to provide

techniques in each general acute care hospital, except for specified
hospitals. The safe patient handling policy would require the
replacement of manual lifting and transferring of patients with
powered patient transfer devices, lifting devices, or lift teams, as
specified. As part of the injury and illness prevention programs
required by existing regulations, employers would be required to
adopt a patient protection and health care worker back and
musculoskeletal injury prevention plan, which shall include a safe
patient handling policy component, as specified, to protect patients
and health care workers, as defined, in health care facilities. Hospital Patient and Health Care Worker Injury Protection Act. California
