Personal protective equipment (PPE) for biological hazards – such as, gloves, gowns, aprons, masks, or protective eyewear (face shields, goggles or glasses) – reduce the risk of exposure to potentially infective materials. This book highlights the risks inherent in dermatological surgery and the various tools used in its practice. The authors provide detailed guidance on best practice to remove or reduce risk and thus this book is an essential reference for anyone involved from dermatologic and cosmetic surgeons through nursing staff and on to clinic administrators. The book is lavishly illustrated to show some of the practical aspects of the subject and is packed with tips and tricks to assist the practitioner reduce risk wherever possible.

In medical practice, unfamiliarity with procedures increases the likelihood of occupational exposures. Learning to perform a procedure properly early on reinforces safe habits, improves overall surgical safety, and reduces occupational exposures.

Safety in Office-Based Dermatologic Surgery is relevant to any healthcare professional who participates in office-based procedures, such as injections, biopsies, excisions, and laser surgery. The authors bring over 15 years’ combined experience in training residents and medical students, enabling them to identify common unsafe practices in office-based surgery. Chapters are divided into individual procedures for easy referencing by students, trainees, as well as seasoned practitioners. Figures illustrate how seemingly innocuous actions and procedures can result in dangerous exposures to healthcare workers. Hazardous scenarios are subsequently followed with one or a series of safer solutions, with the accident and solution concisely explained and clearly illustrated.
