Resumen Among some 2,000 persons in 37 departments of five hospitals in the region of Stockholm, Sweden, there were 465 reported cases of blood contact: 65 cases of contact with puncture wounds or cuts ('injection' cases), 57 with mucous membranes or injured skin and 343 with intact skin. Midwives had the highest frequency of incidents (389 per 100 persons), followed by physicians with 217 and nurses with 146 (laboratory and dental personnel were also included in the study). Injection cases were most frequent for the physicians (34/100 persons), followed by the nurses (27) and midwives (24). A follow-up study of 522 of the initial group showed that incidents were under-reported. Interviews with representative subjects gave details on the circumstances of the incidents.
