Abstract

Healthcare providers face occupational health risks through contact with patients, both directly and indirectly via hospital waste. The occupational risk for healthcare staff in developing countries is much higher owing to factors such as illiteracy, resource constraints, poor waste management practices, etc. [1]. Although various studies have been undertaken to determine the risk factors associated with infectious diseases among hospital paramedic staff in developing countries, similar studies on the staff of hospital facilities departments are few in such countries.
