Abstract

Objective: Intensive care unit (ICU) personnel are at high risk for infectious agents during interventional procedures, surgical procedures, and processes such as injection. Hepatitis B (HBV), Hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are the most common agents. In this study, we aimed to investigate the seroprevalence of HBsAg, anti-HCV and antiHIV in ICU patients.
