Knox County Schools: Bloodborne Pathogens Awareness Quiz - Quiz

Germs that can cause long-lasting infection in human blood and disease in humans are called bloodborne pathogens. They can be transmitted when blood or body fluid from an infected person enters another person's body. The quiz below is for the Knox county schools and is designed to test your knowledge of bloodborne pathogens. Give it a shot and get to understand the topic more!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What are the three types of pathogens to be aware of when  dealing with bodily fluids?

    • A.

      Hepatitis C, VRE and Staph

    • B.

      HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C

    • C.

      Hepatitis A, HIV and Hepatitis B

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C
    Explanation
    The three types of pathogens to be aware of when dealing with bodily fluids are HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C. These pathogens can be transmitted through contact with infected blood or other bodily fluids, and can cause serious health complications if not properly managed. It is important to take precautions and follow proper safety protocols when handling bodily fluids to prevent the spread of these pathogens.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    You can tell if someone is infected with a BBP (bloodborne pathogen) by looking at them.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not possible to tell if someone is infected with a bloodborne pathogen (BBP) by simply looking at them. BBPs are pathogens, such as HIV or hepatitis B and C, that are present in an infected person's blood and can be transmitted through contact with infected blood or other bodily fluids. These pathogens are not visible to the naked eye, and someone can be infected without showing any visible symptoms. Therefore, a visual assessment alone cannot determine if someone is infected with a BBP.

    You should wash your hands with an abrassive soap after removing gloves.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Washing hands with an abrasive soap after removing gloves is not necessary. Abrasive soaps can be harsh on the skin and may cause irritation or dryness. It is generally recommended to use a mild soap or hand sanitizer to clean hands after removing gloves, as long as they are visibly clean.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which pathogen can survive on a surface (e.g.table) for a week?

    • A.

      HIV

    • B.

      Hepatitis C

    • C.

      Hepatitis B

    Correct Answer
    C. Hepatitis B
    Explanation
    Hepatitis B is the correct answer because it is a highly durable virus that can survive on surfaces for up to a week. It is transmitted through contact with infected blood or bodily fluids, making it important to practice proper hygiene and disinfection protocols to prevent its spread. HIV and Hepatitis C are not able to survive on surfaces for as long as Hepatitis B.

    What is the correct procedure to follow after an exposure to a BBP?

    • A.

      Notify school nurse and immediate supervisor

    • B.

      Complete the incident investigation form

    • C.

      Call the Workman's Compensation Office

    • D.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All the above
    Explanation
    After an exposure to a Bloodborne Pathogen (BBP), it is important to follow the correct procedure to ensure safety and proper handling. This includes notifying the school nurse and immediate supervisor to report the incident and seek medical attention if necessary. Completing an incident investigation form helps document the details of the exposure for future reference and analysis. Additionally, calling the Workman's Compensation Office is important to initiate the necessary steps for compensation and support. Therefore, all the options mentioned above should be followed after an exposure to a BBP.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    You can be exposed to a bloodborne pathogen by:

    • A.

      Cuts, scratches or skin abrasions

    • B.

      Using the same toilet

    • C.

      Drinking after someone

    • D.

      Spread through the air

    Correct Answer
    A. Cuts, scratches or skin abrasions
    Explanation
    Bloodborne pathogens can be transmitted through direct contact with infected blood or other bodily fluids. Cuts, scratches, or skin abrasions provide a direct entry point for these pathogens into the bloodstream. Using the same toilet or drinking after someone does not involve direct contact with blood or bodily fluids, so the risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens is lower in these situations. Spread through the air is not a common mode of transmission for bloodborne pathogens.

    Personal protective equipment is:

    • A.

      Used to protect from bodily fluids

    • B.

      A jacket

    • C.

      Gown, gloves, and eye protective wear

    • D.

      Both A and C

    Correct Answer
    D. Both A and C
    Explanation
    Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to any equipment or clothing that is worn to minimize exposure to hazards or risks. Option A states that PPE is used to protect from bodily fluids, which is correct as PPE such as gloves and gowns are commonly used in healthcare settings to protect against bodily fluids. Option C states that PPE includes gown, gloves, and eye protective wear, which is also correct as these items are commonly used as PPE to protect against various hazards. Therefore, the correct answer is both A and C, as both statements accurately describe personal protective equipment.

    When emptying garbage cans, pick up and carry bags from the bottom.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that when emptying garbage cans, it is necessary to pick up and carry bags from the bottom. However, this is not true. When emptying garbage cans, it is more common and efficient to grab the bag from the top, near the opening, and lift it out. This allows for easier handling and prevents any potential spills or messes.

    When attending to a bleeding person, always take time to put on gloves.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to always put on gloves when attending to a bleeding person to protect yourself from potential bloodborne pathogens and to prevent the spread of infection. Gloves create a barrier between your hands and the person's blood, reducing the risk of transmission of diseases such as HIV or hepatitis. By wearing gloves, you can ensure your safety and maintain proper hygiene while providing assistance to the bleeding person.

    If blood or bodily fluids enter your eyes, nose or mouth, flush the area with running water as soon as possible.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If blood or bodily fluids enter your eyes, nose, or mouth, it is important to flush the area with running water as soon as possible. This is because blood and bodily fluids can contain harmful pathogens or viruses that can cause infections or diseases. Flushing the area with running water helps to remove any potential contaminants and reduces the risk of infection. Therefore, the statement is true.
