Transcript of Bloodborne Pathogens and Safety

A federal agency that enforces safety and health legislation in the workplace.
This agency requires that all employees undergo safety training to protect against blood borne pathogens.
Blood borne pathogens are diseases that can be transmitted through the contact of contaminated blood.

CONCLUSION

Exposures to blood and other body fluids occur across a wide variety of occupations. Health care workers and other workers can be exposed to blood through needle stick and other sharps injuries, mucous membranes, and skin exposures.
The pathogens of primary concern are the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV).
MED LAB I PROJECT
PATHOGENS
Hepatitis B
- An inflammatory illness of the liver that is spread through contact of contaminated blood
Hepatitis C
- A viral disease of the liver that is contracted through the contact of contaminated blood
HIV/AIDS
- A virus that causes the human immune system to progressively weaken. This eventually leads to AIDS which causes sever damage to the immune system.
STAPH
- A bacterium that lives on the surface of the skin and inanimate objects that can become serious and infect the body if it enters through open wounds and enters the blood.
PRECAUTIONS
Universal Standard Precautions- precautions in infection control that tells you to treat all human blood and other potentially infectious materials as if they were contaminated.
Health care workers are to wash their hands before and after any contact with patients, any procedures, and contact with any bodily fluids.
Health care workers are also required to wear the appropriate PPEs ( Personal Protective Equipment) during any procedure.
SAFETY
In order to reduce or eliminate the hazards of occupational exposure to blood borne pathogens, an employer must implement an exposure control plan for the work site with details on employee protection measures.
Protect yourself against blood borne pathogens you must wear your Personal Protective Equipment when handling blood and any other body fluids.
Correct use and disposal of needles can also prevent infection.
