What safety precautions are recommended for pregnant healthcare workers? 

Pregnant workers generally are not considered to be at an increased risk for acquiring infections occupationally. Adherence to appropriate infection control precautions, including standard precautions is indicated. Female workers of childbearing age should ensure that they have received all recommended immunizations and consult with their personal physician regarding which immunizations may require booster doses. The "Guidelines for Infection Control in Health Care Personnel, 1998”(1) provide specific information for precautions for pregnant healthcare workers (See table 6 within the document).
