Price: $60.00
Duration: 10 Hours

Everyday, your profession puts you in an environment in which you may be exposed to a number of infectious organisms, including the cytomegalovirus, hepatitis B and C, herpes simplex, HIV, M. tuberculosis, staphylococci, streptococci, and many more, too numerous to name. Transmission of infection in a health care facility can occur following direct contact with contaminated body fluids or tissues and through indirect contact via contaminated instruments or equipment. Transmission can also follow the inhalation of infectious organisms in droplets or aerosols produced by oral and respiratory fluids.

The risk of exposure to these infectious organisms can be significantly reduced by properly following OSHA protocol. This course gives you everything you need to know how to keep an infectious organism-free office. It discusses training, record maintenance, occupational risk, proper housekeeping, pathways of disease transmission, post exposure evaluation and follow-up, exposure categories, vaccination, universal precautions, and OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogen Standard. It includes a protocol manual that you can personalize for your office.

Satisfies multi-state legislative requirements.
