Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms found in the blood that can cause disease in humans. While usually, they’re not something people need to worry about as they’re not airborne or transmitted through saliva, if you’re in an environment where you’re exposed to blood, needlesticks, and other sharp objects that can cause injury…like an operating room, you need to learn how to prevent exposure and keep yourself safe.
