OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Training 2020-2021 - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which is not an example of direct contact

    • A.

      The spread of an bloodborne pathogen from human to human

    • B.

      Accidental needlesticks or other sharps contaminated with the pathogen

    • C.

      Contact between broken skin, mucous membrane (eyes, nose, mouth) or other potentially infectious materials or body fluids

    • D.

      Respiratory transmission

    Correct Answer
    D. Respiratory transmission
    Explanation
    Respiratory transmission is not an example of direct contact because it involves the spread of pathogens through respiratory droplets in the air, rather than through direct physical contact with an infected person or their bodily fluids. Direct contact refers to situations where there is direct physical contact between an infected person and a susceptible person, such as through touching, kissing, or sexual contact. In respiratory transmission, the pathogens are expelled into the air when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, and can be inhaled by others in close proximity.

    The appropriate way to dispose of a used needle is to:

    • A.

      Recap it

    • B.

      Deposit it into a sharps container

    • C.

      Bend or break it so others know that it has been used

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Deposit it into a sharps container
    Explanation
    The appropriate way to dispose of a used needle is to deposit it into a sharps container. This is the safest and most responsible method of disposal as it prevents accidental needlestick injuries and ensures proper containment of potentially infectious materials. Recapitulating the needle can increase the risk of injury, and bending or breaking it does not provide clear indication that it has been used. Therefore, depositing it into a sharps container is the correct answer.

    When handling blood or other potentially infectious materials you should never:

    • A.

      Use Universal Precautions

    • B.

      Wear gloves and or other appropriate PPE

    • C.

      Dispose of all waste materials properly

    • D.

      Eat or drink

    Correct Answer
    D. Eat or drink
    Explanation
    Eating or drinking while handling potentially infectious materials can lead to contamination and increase the risk of infection. Always use universal precautions, wear gloves and/or other appropriate PPE, and dispose of all waste materials properly to ensure safety.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which is an example of practicing Universal Precautions?

    • A.

      Use PPE when interacting with any patient, regardless of whether or not they are known to have an infection

    • B.

      Use PPE only when interacting with patients who have laboratory evidence of infection

    • C.

      Use PPE only when interacting with patients who are suspected of having an infection

    • D.

      Use PPE only when interacting with patients who have bodily fluids on them

    Correct Answer
    A. Use PPE when interacting with any patient, regardless of whether or not they are known to have an infection
    Explanation
    Using personal protective equipment (PPE) when interacting with any patient, regardless of whether or not they are known to have an infection, is an example of practicing Universal Precautions. This means that healthcare workers should assume that every patient has the potential to spread infectious diseases and take necessary precautions to protect themselves and others. By consistently using PPE, such as gloves, masks, and gowns, healthcare workers can minimize the risk of transmission and ensure a safe healthcare environment.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which is an example of a blood borne pathogen exposure incident?

    • A.

      Unanticipated contact with blood

    • B.

      Slipping on a wet floor

    • C.

      An allergic reaction to latex gloves

    • D.

      A patient falling out of bed

    Correct Answer
    A. Unanticipated contact with blood
    Explanation
    An example of a blood borne pathogen exposure incident is unanticipated contact with blood. This means that someone had an unexpected encounter with blood, which can potentially expose them to pathogens such as HIV or hepatitis B. It is important to take immediate action in such incidents, such as cleaning the area and seeking medical attention if necessary, to minimize the risk of infection.

  • 6. 

    Personal protective equipment (PPE): 

    • A.

      Must be purchased by the employee and brought to work each day after laundering at home

    • B.

      Must be provided by the employer at no cost to the employee

    • C.

      Must be available for rent from the employer

    • D.

      May be worn off the unit to go to the cafeteria

    Correct Answer
    B. Must be provided by the employer at no cost to the employee
    Explanation
    According to the given options, the correct answer is that personal protective equipment (PPE) must be provided by the employer at no cost to the employee. This means that it is the responsibility of the employer to supply the necessary PPE to ensure the safety and protection of the employees while they are at work. The employer cannot require the employees to purchase their own PPE or charge them for it. Providing PPE at no cost to the employee is a standard practice to ensure workplace safety.

    The recommended PPE for spurting blood:

    • A.

      Gloves

    • B.

      Gown

    • C.

      Mask

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The recommended PPE for spurting blood includes gloves, gown, and mask. When dealing with spurting blood, it is crucial to protect oneself from potential exposure to bloodborne pathogens. Gloves provide a barrier between the hands and the blood, preventing direct contact. A gown helps to protect the body and clothing from blood splatter. A mask is necessary to protect the respiratory system from inhaling any blood droplets or aerosols. Therefore, using all of the above PPE is essential for personal safety when dealing with spurting blood.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Whose responsibility is it to prevent blood borne pathogen exposure?

    • A.

      The employee

    • B.

      The employer

    • C.

      The employee's immediate supervisor

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the above. Preventing blood borne pathogen exposure is a shared responsibility among the employee, the employer, and the employee's immediate supervisor. The employee must follow safety protocols, use personal protective equipment, and report any potential exposure incidents. The employer is responsible for providing training, implementing safety measures, and ensuring the availability of necessary equipment. The immediate supervisor plays a role in enforcing safety protocols, providing guidance, and addressing any concerns or issues related to blood borne pathogen exposure.

    To reduce the risk of blood borne pathogen exposure, employees should:

    • A.

      Attend training sessions

    • B.

      Provide his/her own PPE (personal protective equipment)

    • C.

      Avoid the rooms of patients who are known to have a blood borne pathogen

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Attend training sessions
    Explanation
    Attending training sessions is an effective way for employees to reduce the risk of blood borne pathogen exposure. These sessions provide important information on how to handle situations involving blood and other bodily fluids, as well as how to properly use personal protective equipment (PPE). By attending these sessions, employees can learn about the proper procedures and precautions to take in order to minimize the risk of exposure and protect themselves and others.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    How soon should you be evaluated if you have a blood borne pathogen exposure?

    • A.

      Within 1-2 months

    • B.

      Within 1-2 days

    • C.

      Within 12 hours

    • D.

      Within 1-2 hours

    Correct Answer
    D. Within 1-2 hours
    Explanation
    If you have a blood borne pathogen exposure, it is important to be evaluated within 1-2 hours. This is because early evaluation and treatment can help prevent the spread of infection and reduce the risk of complications. Blood borne pathogens can be highly infectious and can lead to serious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis. Therefore, getting evaluated promptly allows for timely intervention and appropriate medical management. Waiting for longer periods of time may increase the chances of infection spreading and may limit the effectiveness of preventive measures.
