Bloodborne pathogens are microorganisms such as viruses or bacteria that are carried in blood or other body fluids. Examples include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). They can be transmitted through contact with the eye, nose, mouth or through an opening in the skin.
