What are some examples of bloodborne pathogens?
There are many bloodborne pathogens, which are microorganisms that can be transmitted through the bloodstream. Common examples of bloodborne pathogens that may be present at a crime, death or accident scene include:
- The hepatitis B Virus (HBV), the most common form of the disease
- The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which can lead to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)
- The hepatitis C Virus (HCV)
In addition to bloodborne pathogens, other infectious diseases that are not classified as bloodborne may also be present at the scene, such as Methicillin-Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA), Hepatitis A, C diff, and tuberculosis.
How bloodborne pathogens are spread?
A person’s eyes, nose, mouth or cut skin must come into contact with blood in order to be at risk of acquiring a bloodborne pathogen. This can occur by directly handling blood without protective gloves, clothing or eyewear; being pricked with a contaminated hypodermic needle, or having protective gear be pierced by a sharp object. You cannot determine whether a person has become infected with a bloodborne disease simply by looking, so it’s critical to take all precautions possible when blood is present on a scene.
How does a person get MRSA?
MRSA can be contracted by coming into direct physical contact either with a person who has MRSA on their skin or with an object that has the MRSA bacteria on it. Although MRSA is a type of staph infection, it is notoriously more difficult to treat because it is highly resistant to a number of common antibiotics and continues to adapt to new antibiotics.
Is C.diff contagious? How do you get it?
The Clostridium difficile (C. diff) bacteria is contagious. A person can become infected by touching contaminated surfaces and objects or via person-to-person contact. Because some people can show no symptoms even while carrying the bacteria, they can still transmit C.diff to others. As with many infectious diseases, those most likely to be severely affected are the very young, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems.
What is an unattended death and what hazards does it pose?
We often stress the importance of having a well-trained, professional death scene cleanup team take care of cleaning after an unattended death has occurred.
In the case of an unattended death, the deceased has died alone and his or her body may not have been discovered for an extended length of time. Since the natural decomposition process begins at the moment of death, these scenes can be especially disturbing for the family, friends, neighbors or coworkers who discover them.
As decomposition takes its course, the body’s blood, tissue, and waste is likely to spread out from the body. As it does so, surrounding areas—furniture, flooring, drapes, and even the subfloor and underlying structures of the building—can become contaminated. At Advanced Bio-Treatment, our experienced technicians will not only relieve you of this distressing task; we will also ensure that the spread of bloodborne or airborne pathogens and biohazards is contained and removed. We will then thoroughly disinfect and deodorize the scene and make it safe for re-occupancy.
