Abstract

Worms is an endemic, chronic and zoonotic disease. Soil Transmitted Helminths (STH) are a class of worms that can cause worm infections. STH infection can be transmitted to humans in various ways, one of which is through worm eggs attached to dirty fingernails so that it can pose a risk to health. This study aims to identify STH intestinal nematode eggs on fingernails using the flotation method. This type of research is a descriptive analysis using a laboratory approach method. 20 samples were taken by purposive sampling in four different animal care centers and then identified by the floating method. From the identification results, it was found that 10% of STH intestinal nematode eggs were contaminated on fingernails using the floatation method and 90% were not contaminated with STH intestinal nematode eggs. The types of worm eggs found were Trichuris sp and Hookworm. It is recommended that workers be able to maintain cleanliness of fingernails and wear personal protective equipment (PPE) before starting work.
