As never before, audiologists and their patients are at risk for encountering infectious substances that may expose them to serious diseases. The audiologists in our practice strive to provide high-quality and compassionate care to all our patients, including those with HIV/AIDS and hepatitis B. In our attempt to do so, we found a need to do more thorough research on appropriate recommendations and protocols for protecting our patients, as well as ourselves, from the transmission of these diseases. In this article, we will discuss situations that could put the audiologists and their patients at risk. In addition, we will present a suggested protocol for use in infection control.
