occupational exposures
Occupational Exposures:
  • OSHA definition of occupational exposures:
    • “Reasonably anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with blood or other potential infectious materials that may result from the performance of the employee’s duties.”
occupational exposures66
Occupational Exposures:
  • Since health care workers cannot readily identify those who are infected or risky, it is prudent to employ infection control practices and utilize personal protective equipment(PPE) during all patient care activities.
  • Portals for infectious disease entry are percutaneous, mucous membrane (oral, ocular, nasal or rectal), respiratory, and dermal.
occupational exposures67
Occupational Exposures:
  • The risk of infection in an exposed health care worker depends on the following factors:
    • Route(portal) of exposure
    • Concentration(# of organisms) of pathogens in the infectious material
    • Infectious characteristics(virility) of the pathogen
    • Volume (dose) of infectious material
    • Immunocompetence (susceptibility) of the exposed individual
occupational exposures68
Occupational Exposures:
  • Percutaneous exposures have the greatest potential for infection than do mucous membrane exposures, respiratory exposures, or dermal exposures.
management of health care personnel potentially exposed to hbv hcv hiv
Management of Health Care Personnel Potentially Exposed to HBV,HCV, HIV:
  • Once an infectious exposure has occurred, a plan for post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)medical management should be available to health care providers 24 hrs. a day.
  • The ER physician is usually the first to examine the exposed person and make an assessment of the relative risk of the transmission.
  • See Table 154-3
management of health care personnel potentially exposed to hbv hcv hiv71
Management of Health Care Personnel Potentially Exposed to HBV,HCV, HIV:
  • The exposure event should be evaluated for the potential to transmit HBV, HCV, and HIV based on the type of body substance involved and the route and severity of the exposure.
  • See Table 154-5
management of health care personnel potentially exposed to hbv hcv hiv73
Management of Health Care Personnel Potentially Exposed to HBV,HCV, HIV:
  • Testing to determine the HBV, HCV, and HIV status of an exposure source should be performed as soon as possible.
  • See Table 154-6
hbv exposure
HBV Exposure:
  • Factors to consider in HBV exposure include HBsAg status of source and HBV vaccination status and vaccine response of the exposed person
  • Unvaccinated health care workers exposed to HBV should receive Hep. B vaccine series
  • See Table 154-7
hcv exposure
HCV Exposure:
  • For occupational HCV exposures, the CDC recommends anti-HCV testing of source patient.
  • Immunoglobulin and antivirals are not recommended for PEP after exposure to HCV positive blood
hiv exposure
HIV Exposure:
  • Health care personnel exposed to HIV should receive expedited evaluation(<1hr) and should be tested for HIV at baseline
  • If source patient is HIV negative, baseline testing or further follow-up for exposed persons is not necessary.
  • Factors to consider in HIV exposure include the type of exposure (percutaneous, mucous membrane or dermal), volume of the exposure, and the HIV status of the source patient.
  • See Table 154-8 and Table 154-9
hiv exposure pep
HIV Exposure PEP:
  • CDC recommends 4 wks of PEP drug treatment.
  • Basic 2 drug regimen is appropriate for most exposures
  • 3 drug regimen is recommended for exposures determined to be at increased risk of transmission
  • See Table 154-10 and Table 154-11
standard precautions
Standard Precautions
  • Standard precautions are exercised when caring for all patients and include hand washing, gloves, mask and eye protection or face shield, gowns, handling of patient care equipment and linens, environmental controls, workplace controls and patient location or placement.
  • 1. T/F: standard precautions should be used when caring for all patients.
  • 2. T/F: If the source patient is HIV negative, all further testing for HIV can be stopped.
  • 3. T/F: all health care workers should be vaccinated against HBV.
  • 4. Answers: all T!
ct of cervical spine

  • Indications:
    • Unconscious patient w/suspicious or inadequate c-spine xrays
    • CT is indicated w/all cervical fractures or suspected fractures on initial plain films
