AEB-RAISIN Report 2015

2015 • Surveillance of Accidents with Blood Exposure in French healthcare facilities: the 2015 report concludes the national analysis of the data collected as part of this network since 2002. The results show a steady decline of the AEBs and suggest that the safety of BSs has been clearly improved in recent years. Beyond these very positive results, this surveillance has allowed a better knowledge of the AEBs, an essential step in informing prevention strategies.
Thus, even if this monitoring is no longer a national priority, it remains in the HF where all prevention efforts must be continued.

Social Sciences and Health – 2009

2009/4 • Article by Danièle Carricaburu and Dominique Lhuilier entitled “Nosocomial Infections: Is this collective risk being standardized?”
Following discovered antibiotics it led to believe that the age-old fear of hospital infections was going to disappear, but the bacterial resistance nevertheless appeared very quickly and alerted the professionals concerned. However, this problem was only remained in hospital world, until the outbreak of the Sports Clinic case in 1997. In this case, nosocomial infections are switched from the health field to the political one and become collective risk. The aim of this article is to analyze, not the placement on agenda, but some sequences of this problem area, like its various transformations and qualifications. The latest but not the least prefiguration is a return to the social acceptability of this risk.
