Caring for tomorrow
Yes, nurses sometimes care for people with infectious diseases. Nurses are trained how to protect themselves and others to minimize the risk. It is a legal requirement that employers put protective measures in place but it is also required that employees comply with these measures and do everything in their power to prevent injury or infections. In the event that a nurse is exposed to such a health risk, they will be treated immediately, and the necessary policies and procedures will be implemented.
