Description:Recommendations for HIV testing services for inpatients and outpatients in acute-care hospital settings / John W. Ward, Robert S. Janssen, Harold W. Jaffe, James W. Curran -- Technical guidance on HIV counseling
These recommendations update previous recommendations regarding human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) counseling and testing of patients in acute-care hospital settings (1). The revision was prompted by additional information regarding both the rates at which patients admitted to some acute-care hospitals have unrecognized HIV infection and the potential medical and public health benefits of recognizing HIV infection in persons who have not developed acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
