OSHA Healthcare Connection, August 2, 2011
Healthcare students may be entering their profession not fully protected from one of its deadly hazards, the hepatitis B virus (HBV).
A study examining HBV vaccination records among healthcare students found that only 59.8% of students had documentation of complete vaccination against HBV.
