Session 1 | OSHA is Here! No Need to Fear January 17, 2024 | 12 PM – 1 PM

The OSHA inspector is standing at your front desk. Does that create a knot in your stomach? Untie it! This course will prepare you to breeze through an inspection by providing a review of pertinent laws that impact outpatient care facilities. Requirements of the Bloodborne Pathogen standard, Hazard Communication and other pertinent regulations will be reviewed. The step-by-step process of an OSHA inspection will be discussed along with how to respond if citations/penalties are issued. It is possible to ‘never fear’ an OSHA inspection! Join us and we’ll show you how.

Session 2 | Who’s on First: The Role of the Infection Control Coordinator February 21, 2024 | 12 PM – 1 PM

Now more than ever, safety is a hot topic! Patients are well informed about healthcare risks and workers expect a safe workplace. Incidents involving either can have a negative impact on reputation and finances. This session will provide insight on the selection of an infection control coordinator, development of an infection prevention plan and creating safety policies and procedures. Pertinent regulations addressing worker safety and guidance from other relevant organizations will be reviewed.

Session 3 | TIME OUT!! Management of a Blood Exposure March 20, 2024 | 12 PM – 1 PM

An exposure to blood or certain body fluids should be considered an emergency with very clearly defined steps in place to evaluate the exposed employee and the source patient. This session will discuss actions required by the Bloodborne Pathogen Standard to ensure the employee receives the best possible follow-up after this event.

Session 4 | No Wet Packages: Instrument Processing Done Correctly and Efficiently April 17, 2024 | 12 PM – 1 PM

Isn’t it frustrating when you realize your packages are wet at the end of a sterilization cycle? You are not alone! Correct instrument processing is a top priority for every practice and an efficient process will save you time and money! This fast-paced course answers the most common questions about instrument processing and provides a clear,

4-step process to ensure your instruments are readily available and safe for patient use.

Session 5 | One Needle, One Syringe: Safe Injection Practices May 15, 2024 | 12 PM – 1 PM

As defined by the World Health Organization, a safe injection does not harm the recipient, does not expose the provider to any avoidable risks and does not result in waste that is dangerous for the community. Think about how many injections are provided each day in your practice? Are you aware of the clearly established criteria to reduce the risk of infection or a non-infectious adverse event? This session will examine cases where patient harm was associated with unsafe injection practices AND provide recommendations to ensure you and the patient are safe when providing parenteral medications.
