Abstract

The risk of hepatitis B and C transmission in health care settings has generated considerable attention within the legal system. This article begins with an overview of the relevant sources of law and then explores legal duties and liability arising from two major categories of risk: occupational risks to health care providers and health care-associated risks to patients and other third parties.

Keywords: Liability, Hepatitis, Occupational transmission, Nosocomial infection
