Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. Take this quiz and learn more about it!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following materials could contain Blood borne pathogens?

    • A.

      Bloody saliva

    • B.

      Semen

    • C.

      Vaginal secretions

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the listed materials, including bloody saliva, semen, and vaginal secretions, have the potential to contain bloodborne pathogens. Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms that can be present in the blood and other bodily fluids, and can be transmitted from one person to another through direct contact with infected materials. Therefore, it is important to handle these materials with caution and follow appropriate safety protocols to prevent the spread of bloodborne diseases.

    If you wear gloves when performing a procedure, it is not necessary to wash your hands afterwards.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because wearing gloves does not eliminate the need to wash hands after a procedure. Gloves can become contaminated during the procedure, and washing hands is crucial to remove any potential pathogens that may have transferred from the gloves to the hands. Hand hygiene is essential to prevent the spread of infections and should be practiced regardless of whether gloves are worn or not.

    Blood borne pathogens may enter your system through:

    • A.

      Open cuts

    • B.

      Skin abrasions

    • C.

      Dermatitis

    • D.

      Mucous membranes

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    Blood borne pathogens can enter the system through various means, including open cuts, skin abrasions, dermatitis, and mucous membranes. Open cuts provide a direct pathway for pathogens to enter the bloodstream. Skin abrasions, such as scrapes or scratches, can also allow pathogens to enter the body. Dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin, can weaken the skin's protective barrier and make it easier for pathogens to enter. Mucous membranes, such as those in the eyes, nose, and mouth, can also provide a route for pathogens to enter the body. Therefore, all of the mentioned options can potentially allow blood borne pathogens to enter the system.

    You should always treat all body fluids as if they are infectious and avoid direct skin contact with them.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to treat all body fluids as if they are infectious and avoid direct skin contact with them because it is difficult to determine if a fluid is infectious or not just by looking at it. By treating all body fluids as if they are infectious, you are taking necessary precautions to protect yourself and others from potential infections and diseases that can be transmitted through these fluids. This includes wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves and masks when handling body fluids and practicing proper hygiene and sanitation measures.

  • 5. 

    You should never eat, drink or smoke in a laboratory or other area where there may be potential exposure to Blood borne pathogens.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Eating, drinking, or smoking in a laboratory or any area where there may be potential exposure to bloodborne pathogens can pose serious health risks. Bloodborne pathogens can be present in blood and other bodily fluids, and can transmit diseases such as HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C. Consuming food or drink or smoking in such areas can lead to accidental ingestion or inhalation of these pathogens. Therefore, it is important to follow strict safety protocols and refrain from eating, drinking, or smoking in these environments to minimize the risk of exposure and infection.

    Uncontaminated sharps may be disposed of in regular trash bags.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Uncontaminated sharps should not be disposed of in regular trash bags because they can pose a risk of injury to waste handlers and others. Sharps, such as needles and syringes, should be placed in puncture-resistant containers specifically designed for sharps disposal. These containers are typically made of rigid plastic and have a lid that can be securely closed to prevent accidental needle sticks. Disposing of sharps in regular trash bags increases the risk of needle sticks and potential transmission of bloodborne pathogens. It is important to follow proper sharps disposal guidelines to ensure the safety of waste handlers and the general public.

    A quarter cup of household bleach to one gallon of water provides a strong enough solution to effectively decontaminate most surfaces, tools and equipment if lift for 10 minutes.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    A quarter cup of household bleach mixed with one gallon of water creates a potent solution that can effectively decontaminate various surfaces, tools, and equipment. This solution is strong enough to kill most germs and bacteria present on these items. It is important to let the solution sit for at least 10 minutes to ensure maximum effectiveness. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Needles should never be recapped.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Needles should never be recapped because it poses a risk of accidental needlestick injuries. Recapping needles increases the chances of coming into contact with contaminated needles, which can transmit infectious diseases such as HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C. To ensure safety, needles should be disposed of in puncture-resistant containers immediately after use.
