We all know how risky the work of healthcare professionals can be. They take care of the sick and the unwell. They also handle the blood and bodily fluids of sick people, which may or may not contain particularly dangerous pathogens.
Blood pathogens are microorganisms that transmit hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV from an unhealthy and infected body to a healthy and unsuspecting system. Doctors, nurses, laboratory workers, paramedics, hospital workers and porters handle human blood and body fluids every day and therefore have the maximum risk of contracting this virus. They should be trained in handling fluids and understand how to manage situations during emergencies and accidents.
As part of the bloodborne pathogen program, they are trained to understand the severity of the disease, what precautions should be taken to prevent its spread, how to act in the event of an exposure, and how to protect colleagues and patients from exposure.
Administrative Control: Administrative documentation consists of a list of all occupations and activities that have a risk of contamination with blood-borne pathogens, also known as occupational exposures. It also describes the steps and methods that individuals and management should take to prevent exposure in the workplace. The plan is also known as an exposure control plan.
Control Unit: Tools and equipment used to remove blood or body fluids from the human body are considered technical tools, such as syringes and syringes. This step addresses the safe removal of used or infected material from the site and its disposal.
