Trainee Exposure to Bodily Fluids Policy
(ARC-PA Standard A3.08a-c)
Effective Date: 9/21/2017
The purpose of this policy is to inform trainees, medical providers, faculty, and affiliated hospitals and clinics of their responsibilities and required procedures for trainees to complete following a bodily fluid exposure.
Trainees are potentially exposed to patients with infectious diseases. All trainees at UNR Med will be educated and trained to prevent or reduce exposure to infectious and environmental hazards. For this reason, procedures exist to inform trainees of potential risk and teach techniques and procedures designed to decrease or avoid exposure.
