Barbara Fassbinder on AIDS
Barbara Fassbinder, a nurse who contracted the AIDS virus while assisting a patient in the emergency room, tells her story and advises other nurses and health care workers to use precautions against blood diseases.
Dr. Jack Stapleton, the head of the Virology Department in Iowa City's University of Iowa Hospitals, treats AIDS and HIV+ patients. He gives statistics about how important it is to use universal precautions to prevent contracting AIDS.
