Occupational Hazards...

One of the inherent risks of doing surgery is potential exposure to patients' blood and body fluids. The Cesarean delivery is one of the bloodiest of all surgeries.

As Scott attempted to extract the placenta from HIV+ mother during a C-section this week, the cord tore and blood splashed up onto his mask and glasses.

Thankfully... -- it was cord blood which should be virus-free -- he doesn't think he got any fluid in his eyes -- the mom is on treatment so she should have very low virus in the blood.

However, please feel free to shoot a prayer up for his continuing HIV-free status if you think of it!
