A blood-borne pathogen is a microorganism that can cause an infection or a disease in your body. They live in blood and a variety of other bodily fluids such as mucus and semen. In fact, all liquid that comes from the human body is considered a way to transmit a disease when it comes to a crime scene. Regardless of what type of fluid it is, it is a danger that will contaminate any space and needs to be dealt with immediately.
There are a variety of different viruses that you can contract through bloodborne pathogens. While the current number rests at a little over two dozen, there may be more that we are not yet aware of. The most common ones that people are the concerned about are viruses such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV/AIDS.
While many people think that the only time they need to worry about bloodborne pathogens is when there is actual blood, that is not the case. If you have had a crime scene occur that involves a person who was hurt or died there is a good chance that there are pathogens that have been left behind. In fact, there might be blood splatter that you haven’t seen because it’s a small amount or somewhere you can’t easily access.
The term bloodborne itself is a little misleading since these sort of pathogens exist in a variety of different body fluids. That means that even if you don’t see blood, it’s still wise to call a crime scene cleanup technician.
While the HIV virus usually cannot survive outside of a host for very long there is a chance that it can survive for longer than you would think. In fact, researchers and scientists have been able to recover a living HIV sample from a human corpse after death had occurred more than two weeks previously. If your environment is dark and a lower temperature, then the HIV virus can live in dried fluids and possibly infect you down the road.
Hepatitis B can continue to live for up to a week in dried pathogens. You can get a Hepatitis B infection if you touch a surface that’s been contaminated with bodily fluid from an infected person, which means that any surface in your state can potentially become a serious problem for any individuals who enter it. Simply touching a counter or a wall that hasn’t been decontaminated can expose you to a serious disease.
While it may seem that avoiding an area that needs to be cleaned will keep you safe, it is not. Frequently biohazard ends up on surfaces nearby even though they can appear completely clean. Pathogens can live in a variety of areas in your home where you wouldn’t even think that they could have reached.
The longer that they live there, the more chance that they will transmit a disease to you or those that you care about. This is one of the main reasons that hospitals are so diligent when it comes to disinfecting all surfaces even if they haven’t been touched by someone who is sick.
There are a variety of precautions that we strongly suggest that you take to keep yourself from contracting a disease from contaminated bodily fluids. First, you should completely remove yourself and all others from the area and arrange to either live or have your business run elsewhere for a period of time. You should then reach out to law enforcement to see when you can have the area cleaned by a professional. These two steps will go a long way towards making sure that you stay healthy.
