Needle Sticks & Exposures (Non-COVID)

If an exposure occurs, the employee should report it as soon as possible to Employee Health.

UAB employees are at risk for accidental needlesticks, splashes or other exposures to blood or body fluids.

We all should do everything possible to protect ourselves (and others) from these occurrences by using safety devices, protective equipment, standard precautions and other elements of safe practice.

For needle sticks and/or other exposures (including blood or body fluids), call Employee Health at 205-934-3675 during normal business hours. After hours, on weekends and holidays report by calling the Call Center at 205-934-3411 and asking them to page the person on call for the "Needle Stick Team."
