I worked in IT for a chain of dialysis clinics. We handled all their computer work, from the receptionist’s Word questions to the machines that monitored the dialysis.

I never saw a patient. They were 100s of miles away.

Any job that involves interacting with patients has the potential to involve body fluids. The only way your safe from it is if your in an office and the patients are in a different building.

@zenvelo mentions radiology technician, but you can be a full blown radiologist MD and spend the entire day analyzing X-rays, far away from patients and their fluids.

If you’re squeamish about body fluids then medical may not be the career path for you.
