Injury and Infection

How should you respond if you have been injured or infected while participating in a work placement (supervised professional training)?

In cases where there is a risk of infection (especially relevant for students in the health sciences):

If you have experienced a cut or have had your skin pierced by a sharp object, you should have a blood test administered (Type O test) to indicate whether you were already infected at the time the injury took place. Having done this, you should take additional blood tests as recommended by the health care facility where you are on work placement.

Students participating in work placement are treated in the same way as employees of the healthcare sector in cases where there is a need to administer a prophylactic treatment in cases where there is a risk of inoculation infection.
