"If a physician who performs exposure-prone procedures learns that he or she is positive for HIV, HBV or HCV, he or she is ethically obligated to contact the College for a review of whether his or her serologic status will have an effect on his or her medical practice. The College will take such steps as are necessary, as authorized by the legislation, to ensure that practice modifications, if any, that are appropriate to the situation are made. In doing so, the College will consult and receive advice from experts in the field."
