    Part 1: Bloodborne Pathogens   Today’s training will be about standard precautions.  We will learn about the use and disposal of sharps, procedures regarding exposure incidents, food service practices, disposing of regulated waste and the spread of disease as well as other related topics. According to the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) government website, bloodborne pathogens are defined as pathogenic microorganisms that are present in human blood and can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B virus (HBV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Bloodborne pathogens spread from person to person through indirect or direct contact with blood or other bodily fluids.  Direct contact transmission occurs when infected blood enters another person’s body.  It could be in contact with someone’s nose, eyes, mouth or an open sore. Indirect contact  is achieved through some intervening medium. Transmission can occur by, for example, a person with an open sore touching a used Band-Aid. You can obtain more information about modes of transmission in Policy C-7: Policy and Procedure for Communicable Disease and Infection Control. OSHA specifically outlines the rules for four diseases of a bloodborne nature; HIV, AIDS, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, HIV or human immunodeficiency virus is the virus which can lead to AIDS.  HIV finds and kills white blood cells which help fight off disease. AIDS or acquired immune deficiency syndrome is actually the last stage of the HIV infection.   Hepatitis is generally a liver disease.  To date, more and more hepatitis viruses are being found.  While many people know of the Hepatitis A, B and C viruses, did you know there is also a D, E, F, and G virus?  Many of the later viruses can be related to the initial viruses found but are indeed their own viruses with their own issues, some of which have no cure or treatment. The Hepatitis B virus can cause cancer, liver failure and ultimately lead to death in some cases. In our line of work as a direct care workers, needle sticks are the most common form of bloodborne exposure, generally reaching between 600 and 800 thousand sticks per year. As indicated in Policy C-7, we do not recap or bend used needles. They are to be placed immediately into a sharps container. Communicable diseases are diseases that can spread between two people such as measles, athlete’s foot and the flu. We want to prevent the spread of these diseases in any way we can and rely on medical professionals for diagnosis and suggestions for prevention. Some general rules to prevent spreading disease are to cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze, wash your hands frequently, but especially after coughing or being coughed or sneezed upon by others, use a mask in certain cases.

    One of the most important rules for all support staff to follow is the use of biohazard containers, and is a rule of OSHA.  The container must have the biohazard sign, and can be used to contain regulated waste, the shipping of blood or other bodily fluids and disposal of sharps. If needed, you can use red bags in place of biohazard containers.Regulated waste is also very important to put into biohazard bags such as tissues, wet and dry blood exposed clothing and sharps.  Sharps are not limited to but include needles, broken glass and lancets.Gloves, gowns, glasses, masks and some other materials are called PPE, or personal protective equipment. It is used to protect your skin and prevent contamination of bloodborne pathogens.  When cleaning up spills or working with blood in any way, these materials should be worn at all times. It is also imperative that one wear this equipment when transferring infectious materials in any way to take care of your skin and the prevention of disease. Policy C-7 outlines the specific instances when PPE should be used. Remember to use fresh gloves for EACH contact/procedure, even if it is the same person. Non-use of PPE will be investigated by the Program Manager. If you do not have the correct equipment or PPE to complete the task contact your manager immediately. Please remember; NEVER put any type of specimen container in the same refrigerator as food is stored in.
