For healthcare facilities and long-term care facilities looking to promote employee safety in the workplace, this webinar will provide essential information on structuring your employee health program as per Center of Disease Control (CDC), Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommendations.
The CDC, OSHA, CMS and NIOSH have set guidelines, regulations and requirements for healthcare organizations to ensure the prevention of exposures and incidents that could lead to infection on the job. These guidelines describe how facilities should actively identify and limit the exposure of staff to infectious diseases in the performance of their assigned duties.
In this course, attendees will be introduced to various regulations and guidelines dictated by the related governing body and understand the need for compliance with these requirements.
The employee health plan is the foundation of efforts designed to reduce risks of infections and bloodborne pathogen exposures in a facility. The adherence to standard precautions and sharps safety by staff is necessary to prevent contact with blood and other potentially infectious material. Assuring that staff members are adequately screened for infectious disease and immunity on employment and provided with appropriate immunizations on an annual basis, such as influenza immunization, is an important infection prevention component of the employee health program.
Other critical elements of an effective employee health program will also be highlighted in the webinar along with best practices for pregnant personnel, laboratory personnel, and emergency response personnel. The course will assist participants in implementing a program that meets the requirements of accrediting and regulatory agencies and local and state requirements to prevent disease transmission in staff.Learning Objectives:
