Nurse with positive Hepatitis B

Is a nurse with positive hepatitis B can be able to work in a hospital? As everyone knows it is tramitted via blood but the lab test shows it is not active or high antibodies are point to consider. Is there any chance a nurse can still work if blood test shows Hepatitis B is positive?

Sorry about your condition Rist. Did you get infected from work? If you did then it sould seem that if they dont let you work, they should compensate you in some other way.

Not a HEP B expert, but I thought I read that most people clear it on their own. I also read that there was recently a new med approved by the FDA for HBV. In any event, just hang in there!!

Dont be discourage.. i have a cousin that got a hepatitis B virus.. she got it when she was working in a hospital.. she was diagnosed as Hepatitis B carrier.. after several years she was examined again.. now she is immune with the virus..she is now a chief nurse in a hospital in our city.. she survived it.. during the blood test it was negative.. so dont be hopeless... just pray... God will answer you... My mother did same.. she was diagnosed with Hepatitis B every 10 years.. but now... she is negative...

If you do not have HBV, make sure you have anti-HBs positive, so that you are immune.  If your anti-HBs is still negative, get vaccinated.

i was hired in the hospital only recently, all my medical exams are okay..i was vaccinated hep b 15 yrs ago and was revaccinated a month ago since my dosage of immunity was decreased..nothing worried me until a week ago i found out that..."my husband was hepatitis b positive, since he got his blood exams results from the screening for blood donor"...we have 2 children and i was so afraid about them and for me also...i dont know what the first thing to do...it is possible that i might be a hepa positive too even unerd vaccination?? and my children might hve the virus too? do i need to inform the hospital where im working about this situation? im so afraid of so many things...i need my work, my children what do i need to do?? i am not blaming my husband for not informing abt this bec. he himself are not aware abt this and he got the virus when he was a child...PLEASE HEEELPPP MEE!!!!

hi..nakapag work po ba kayo as a nurse kasi anti Hbc IGg is the lifelong marker of hepa b.. HEPA PROFILE po ba yung nirerequire ng most companies para makapag apply or just the screening?
