- For Transmission of disease two things are important:
- OSHA Requirements for Infection Control
- What autoclave or chemical do we use for sterilization?
- What is the most common mode of transmission for disease?
- Two Attributes of pathogenic organisms required to produce disease:
- If cells are epithelial, what does that mean?
- a Anything that touches blood or body fluids should be sterilized. Cerumen is not contaminated however, it does contain blood
- b 2% glutaraldehyde
soak items to be sterilized for 4-8 hrs; overnight is best
- c cleaning, disinfecting, and sterilizing
- d Each employee is classified on the basis of their potential exposure to blood and other infectious substances. The front office staff has no classification, so you need to take care of everything. How likely are you to be exposed?
- e a nick, cut or irritations is necessary to facilitate infection via the ear canal
- f Actual steps that will be take in your office to implement universal precautions
- g touching
- h 1. A vehicle of transmission must be available (i.e. airborne, blood borne)
2. Microbes must normally locate a cut, nick, or body opening for their transmissions. The mouth, nose, and eyes are particularly vulnerable because they are open membranous material.
- i STEP 1: Cleaning- removing the gross contamination but not necessarily killing any germs.
STEP 2: Disinfection- means that you are killing germs
STEP 3: Sterilization- you are killing 100% of the vegetative microorganisms and their endospores. Microbes can convert to spores, which are harder to kill so the sterilization must kill these too--This would be to autoclave, or chemically kill with 2% glutaraldehyde, or heat.
- j Each office is to conduct annual training in infection control and document it
- k 1.
The microbe must be able to metabolize and multiply in or on a host.
(If it gets to our hands and we wash it off you should be good.)
2. If 1 is met, the pathogen must be able to resist the defenses of the host sufficiently to be able to replicate to the higher numbers required to produce the disease.
- l (A written Infection Control Plan)
-Hepatitis B Vaccination Records
-Post exposure records
- m Employees who have the potential for encountering blood or other infectious substances should get Hep B - have you gotten yours? It is on your shoulders to let supervisors know
- n Office must document the treatment that has taken place and outcome following exposure.
- o external epithelium
