Bloodborne Pathogens and YOU!
- General User - Free!
Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Needlesticks and other sharps-related injuries may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens. This one-hour program was developed to assist you in identifying the ways disease can be transmitted through body fluids while identifying ways to provide protection to you, the caregiver. The program will discuss personal protection equipment and standard precautions as they related to your work environment. At the completion of this session, post-test and evaluation, one contact hour for licensed nurses will be awarded through the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and licensed Administrators will receive 0.75 CEU through the National Administrator Board (NAB).
