As caregivers, our job can be complicated. In addition to the support and care we provide for residents, we must also protect them from the dangers of acquired illness caused by blood-borne pathogens. We provide a first level of defense for them, their families, our co-workers and ourselves.
This educational program and any accompanying in-service training will help you understand:
- The risks of exposure to blood-borne pathogens
- How you can help ensure safety for you and the residents under your care, and
- Precautions for administering care when exposures occur and infections are present.
