Preventing Bloodborne Infections: Engineering Controls Work Practice Controls


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. Some of these involve changes to practices at work such as to regularly wearing personal protective equipment but others require basic changes to the engineering and design of medical equipment to make them safer to use.

This is the third of three programs on preventing bloodborne infections, and it will examine OSHA mandated changes in medical equipment engineering controls and the way tasks are performed work practice controls.


After completing this course, the learner should be able to:

  • Describe the safe handling of sharps and use of safer needle devices.
  • Describe decontamination and cleaning procedures.
  • Describe the CDC hand hygiene guidelines.
This program also includes workbooks that can be ordered separately.

 This program has been designated for 0.5 contact hours of continuing nursing education credits.
