Protecting Healthcare Workers from Respiratory  Infections such as TB and Flu (CD or MP3 File: $99)

TB Guidelines Have Changed!  Are You Ready?

CDC's new TB Guidelines have been realeased and they require a complete overhaul of your practices' TB policies.  After plowing through hundreds of pages of CDC's new TB Guidelines, we at Quality America were pleasantly surprised to learn that for outpatient medical and dental facilities, the new guidelines aren't difficult or expensive, and unlike some other federal regulations, they really do make sense!  How can you get up to speed quickly and easily?  This seminar is designed to provide information on how to quickly and easily implement CDC's new TB Guidelines.

Topics include:

  • Determining your practice's risk (i.e., how to perform a risk assessment).
  • Testing employees for TB and dealing with complications with the test (e.g., BCG vaccine).
  • How to quickly identify TB patients and require them to practice respiratory hygiene.
  • What masks must be worn when working with patents who have or are suspected to  have TB, flu and whooping cough
  • What actions you should take when an employee has a positive TB skin test

Preventing Workplace Violence (CD/MP3 File: $99)

Each day more than 9,000 healthcare workers are verbally or physically attacked on the job. OSHA can cite medical facilities under the General Duty Clause for failing to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards. This includes preventing and controlling the hazard of workplace violence.

In this audio conference, you will learn about effective steps you can take in your facility to lessen the chance that an act of violence will occur. These steps include performing a risk assessment for determining how likely your facility would be affected. Then, you will learn the components of a Violence Prevention Program including the types of workplace violence most likely to occur (types of perpetrators). Finally, we’ll discuss how to recognize and respond to “red flag” behavior in order to de-escalate acts of aggression that can snowball into full-fledged violence.

Handouts will include a sample Violence Prevention Program and a Facility Risk Assessment.
