HYGIENIC PRACTICES IN HANDLING BLOOD AND BODY FLUIDS
Schools should adopt routine procedures for handling blood or body fluids. Soiled surfaces should be promptly cleaned with disinfectants, such as a household bleach solution (dilute 1 part bleach to 10 parts water). Disposable towels or tissues should be used whenever possible, and mops should be rinsed in a bleach solution. Staff cleaning soiled surfaces should avoid exposure to their mucous membranes (for example: eyes) and/or any open skin lesions (for example: open cuts or sores). The wearing of disposable gloves is recommended only for persons with open skin lesions on their hands.
