Body Fluid & Sharps

Blood and body fluid spillages should be dealt with immediately or as soon as it is safe to do so. 

  • Other persons should be kept away from the spillage until the area has been decontaminated and is dry. 
  • Care should be taken if there are sharps present, sharps should first be disposed of appropriately into a sharps container. 
  • Spills should be removed before the area is decontaminated. Guidelines on Infection Prevention and Control.
  • Adding liquids to spills increases the size of the spill and should be avoided. 
  • The scientific evidence to support the use of a chlorine releasing agents to inactivate viruses in a blood spillage is inconclusive as its' effectiveness where there is a large bio-burden has not been fully established (CDC, 2003). The evidence supports the need to remove most organic material from a large spill before final disinfection of a surface. 
  • Chlorine releasing agents should be used as per manufacturer’s instructions.
  • It is recommended that supplies of personal protective equipment, paper towels, cleaning chemicals and waste bags are readily available for spills management.
