6. 56 healthcare workers, mostly nurses, contracted HIV from caregiving duties in the US

 

There has not been a new case since 1999. This is because the protocols that work are something that is learned and in infectious diseases that learning can come the hard way.
I've been surprised that people expect utter perfection in dangerous work starting with patient one. That perfection has never existed in the past.
