Occupational Zika Risks for Lab and Biomedical Researchers
The rapid spread of Zika virus may have slowed, but we’re still feeling the effects. From children born with microcephaly related to congenital Zika to the challenges of mosquito-control, Zika tested worldwide public health and health care response in a new way. Since the large outbreak began in 2015, the virus has spread to more than 80 countries/territories and 42,000 cases were identified in the United States alone.

Sharps Injuries: Not Part of Anyone's Job
It is generally understood that police officers, firefighters, military professionals, stuntmen and women, wild animal trainers and racecar drivers accept the obvious personal risk that comes with their careers. Healthcare providers, however, do not typically think of themselves as thrill-seekers or extreme risk takers. Most nurses, physicians, surgical technologists, phlebotomists, lab technicians, radiologists and sterile processing professionals probably do not expect their lives to change forever because of an accidental jab with a contaminated hypodermic needle, suture needle, scalpel, retractor, or other sharp device. And yet, lives can be changed, literally in an instant. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 385,000 percutaneous injuries (needle sticks, cuts, punctures and other injuries with sharp objects) occur in U.S. hospitals each year.
