  • Section F: Privacy and Declaration Statement

    Clinical employees are reminded to consider their own risk of infection with blood-borne pathogens (hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV) and the associated risk of transmitting infection to patients. Professional bodies (NZ Medical Association, NZNO, Australasian College of Surgeons etc.) have statements relating to this, and workers should acquaint themselves with the appropriate association policies. Any employee who is a carrier of a blood-borne disease and knowingly exposes their patients to a risk of infection based on their own risk assessment, without seeking further counselling, could be open to disciplinary proceedings.
