Resumen

JEFFERSON MARTINS, Ronald et al. Prevalence of accidents with biological material in a northwest area town of São Paulo state, Brazil, From 2007 to 2011. Cienc Trab. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.50, pp.93-96. ISSN 0718-2449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-24492014000200006.

The objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of reports of accidents involving biological material which affected health professionals, especially dental health ones, in a city in the north­western region of São Paulo State, Brazil. Data collection was con­ducted through the notification of accidents with biological material from 2007 to 2011. There were 377 notifications, in which 353 (93.6%) had female professionals involved. The most reported type of exposure was the percutaneous in 359 cases (95.2%) followed by blood in 334 cases (88.6%) which is the most mentioned biological material in the reports. Only 21 (5.6%) notifications were from den­tal staff and occurred mostly with the dentist, 14 times (66.7%) and 16 times (76.2%) during clinical procedures. The prevalence of bio­logical accidents among dental teams was little in this time, which suggests the possibility of underreporting, in addition to being sub­ject to the partial fulfillment of the same.
