Abstract
Hospital employees are at risk for exposure to a variety of communicable diseases, which they may transmit to patients and other workers. The employee health service plays a critical role in an effective infection control program. In this article, we outline the major responsibilities of the employee health service and summarize key current recommendations for management of exposures.
