BEDOYA, Elías A; SIERRA, Darío D; SEVERICHE, Carlos A  and  MEZA, María de J. Diagnosis of Biosecurity in the Health Sector of the Department of Bolívar, Northern Colombia. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.5, pp.225-232. ISSN 0718-0764.

Biosecurity conditions were diagnosed in the health sector of the department of Bolívar, in the Colombian Caribbean. The study was qualitative, cross - sectional, carried out in 33 institutions providing health services that detailed the biosecurity conditions through the use of checklists related to biological risk, documentary review and accident statistics. An average of 262856 man hours were found, with 2012 and 2013 being the years with more injured cases with biological risk, with 37 and 30 accidents respectively. In the 33 institutions that were evaluated, an average of 262856 man hours were found, between the years 2011 and 2013 an average of 7.6 accidents were generated, being the year 2013 the most critical among the evaluated institutions.
