In the 1980s, the worldwide AIDS epidemic focused new attention on infection control procedures, particularly as they relate to bloodborne pathogens such as the virus that causes AIDS, HIV and the hepatitis B and C viruses. After intense study by both the CDC and OSHA, new recommendations and mandates were made that brought about many changes in healthcare practice to help prevent the spread of bloodborne infections.

This new 3-part series, Preventing Bloodborne Infections in Long Term Care, provides learners with an understanding of the pathogenicity of HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C, and strategies developed for the long term care environment to prevent their spread through work practice controls and engineering controls.

One effect of the AIDS epidemic was an intensified scrutiny of infection control practices throughout American and world healthcare, particularly practices relating to the transmission of bloodborne pathogens, such as HIV and the hepatitis B and hepatitis C viruses. After intense study by both the CDC and OSHA, new recommendations and mandates brought many changes in healthcare practice to help prevent the spread of these bloodborne infections.

This is the second of three programs on preventing bloodborne infections, and it will examine the measures you can take in the long term care environment to prevent the spread of bloodborne pathogens, as well as how to protect yourself in the healthcare workplace.

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • Describe Universal Precautions.
  • Describe Standard Precautions.*
  • Describe post-exposure responses.
  • Describe the use of gloves for protection against bloodborne infections.
  • Describe the use of eyeware for protection against bloodborne infections.
  • Describe the use of gowns for protection against bloodborne infections
