The results of the investigation and available statistics show that the present-day practitioner is better acquainted with the helath status of hospital staff and is therefore more efficient as regards preventive medicine. Analysis of general hepatitis prevention in hospital services: systematic medical surveillance and individual prevention (medical examinations, laboratory tests, consultations, return to work). Review of immunological aspects of viral hepatitis.
