Verbalization by Nurses in the City of Ribeirao Preto- SP, Brazil with Regard to Chemical Occupational Hazards in Hospital Environments
Abstract:
Verbalization by Nurses in the City of Ribeirao Preto- SP, Brazil with Regard to Chemical Occupational Hazards in Hospital Environments
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Xelegati, Rosicler
P.I. Institution Name:University of Sao Paulo at Ribeirao Preto
The exposure of nursing workers to chemical occupational hazards in hospital environments takes place in various ways, among which are: the prolonged use of protective latex gloves; the handling of detergents and solvents; manipulation of anti-neoplastic drugs and latest-generation antibiotics; inhalation of anesthetic gas, exposure to formaldehyde and glutaraldehyde vapors and sterilizing gas, among others. This work was conducted with nurses from a hospital in the City of Ribeirao Preto-SP, Brazil with the purpose to identify what chemical substances are verbalized by such professionals, what types of health problems the inadequate manipulation of such substances can cause and whether these workers take preventive measures against such risks. As a result of this study, it is expected that an increase in the search for information by these nurses concerning this theme will increase. It is also expected that they will be more cautious in regard to the prevention of accidents and/or occupational illness.
