Staff can be exposed to blood and other body fluids through needlestick and other sharps injuries. They may accidentally get in contact with used needles between bedsheets, under beds, in garbage containers, and hidden in washrooms.

These items could be contaminated with blood and body fluids infected with microorganisms that can cause diseases. These are known as bloodborne pathogens. The bloodborne pathogens of most concern are the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the hepatitis B and C viruses. These viruses cause diseases that can lead to death.
