Our morning class is Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure Control For Healthcare Facilities, taught by Dave Ryan. This class will fulfill the requirements for safety for NCCAOM and 2.5 PDAs are pending.
We will review the laws and the rights of the employees in regards to bloodborne pathogens, as well as best practices. The class will define medical waste and address the administrative needs to comply with federal guidelines. Define and identify bloodborne pathogens as well as possible methods of occupational exposure; determine the levels of exposure for different employees; describe requirements of a proper written exposure control plan and methods of compliance; how to establish universal precautions in the workplace through PPE and proper housekeeping practices; determine how to handle a possible exposure incident, including proper recordkeeping.
After this class, we’ll break for lunch and networking with colleagues.
