COVID-19 brought about many changes last year, including our approach to infection control and OSHA compliance such as the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard. In between closing and reopening your practice and implementing many new safeguards, did you remember to update your infection control and OSHA plans? This fun and fact-filled lecture discusses common areas where missing a compliance beat can trip you up with federal regulators. Remember, the strategies your team uses to identify, resolve, and standardize different infection control and compliance perspectives is crucial, whether it’s managing supply chain interruptions or exposure incidents. Does your team tap dance around compliance dissimilarities? Or, does everyone adhere to regulatory standards to stay in step? Ensure the basic infection control, OSHA, and Bloodborne Pathogens requirements are current and compliant. This course satisfies the DANB infection control requirements.
