As a technologist was opening a rubber-stoppered urine collection tube, the specimen splashed into the face of the technologist and the student with her. Embarrassed, the technologist noticed that the student was busy and had not even noticed the splash and she said nothing to the student. They continued working without addressing the splash. 1. What possible infectious agents might this technologist and student now be exposed to? 2. What are the proper steps for handling this incident? 3. What should have been done to prevent this incident from happening? 4. What ethical issues were not addressed by the technologist?
