Body Substance Isolation

Body substance isolation is a practice of isolating all body substances (blood, urine, feces, tears, etc.) of individuals undergoing medical treatment, particularly emergency medical treatment of those who might be infected with illnesses such as HIV, or hepatitis so as to reduce as much as possible the chances of transmitting these illnesses. BSI is similar in nature to universal precautions, but goes further in isolating workers from pathogens, including substances now known to carry HIV.

Famous quotes containing the words isolation, body and/or substance:

    One who shows signs of mental aberration is, inevitably, perhaps, but cruelly, shut off from familiar, thoughtless intercourse, partly excommunicated; his isolation is unwittingly proclaimed to him on every countenance by curiosity, indifference, aversion, or pity, and in so far as he is human enough to need free and equal communication and feel the lack of it, he suffers pain and loss of a kind and degree which others can only faintly imagine, and for the most part ignore.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    The body in the grave is like the tree in winter; they conceal their greenness under a show of dryness.... We too must wait for the springtime of the body.
    Marcus Minucius Felix (2nd or 3rd cent. A.D.)

    Strong be thy wallis that about the standis;
    Wise be the people that within the dwellis;
    Fresh is thy ryver with his lusty strandis;
    Blith be thy chirches, wele sownyng be thy bellis;
    Riche be thy merchauntis in substance that excellis
    Fair be thy wives, right lovesom, white and small;
    Clere be thy virgyns, lusty under kellis:
    London, thou art the flour of Cities all.
    William Dunbar (c. 1465–c. 1530)
