Surgery has many risks for patients and the team. Some patients, the very young and the elderly are more vulnerable and should have special care to protect them. All members of the surgical and anaesthetic team are specially trained to reduce risks for the patient and themselves.
We believe that by using Universal Precautions the care team can reduce risks and avoid discrimination between patients. Blood borne viruses are a specific risk, which the team will protect themselves from by using appropriate personal protective equipment.
