This information sheet provides recommendations from the CDC regarding the prevention of occupational transmission of HIV to health care workers (HCWs). The primary means of preventing the HCW's occupational exposure to HIV is to follow infection control precautions with the assumption that the blood and other body fluids from all patients are potentially infectious. Plans for postexposure management of HCWs should be in place, and the administration of antiretroviral drugs as postexposure prophylaxis (PEP) should be considered.
