Infection control refers to policies and procedures used to minimize the potential risk of spreading infections in healthcare facilities. As a healthcare worker, you are at a much higher risk of exposure and potential infection. Implementing the proper protocol and sterilization practices, and utilizing the correct personal protective equipment can help lessen the likelihood of contracting infections.
It is of utmost importance to train your staff on proper infection control practices to reduce the occurrence of infectious diseases. Infection control programs aim at preventable disease and infectious agent risk mitigation. Protect your staff, patients, and practice by signing up for your annual infection disease and blood-borne pathogen training.

According to the CDC, Healthcare treating facilities need to adopt and update their Aerosol Transmissible Disease (ATD) plan to assure employees and patients are safe. Cal/OSHA’s ATD standard (section 5199) is a model plan that other states throughout the country are adopting to fight the spread of this outbreak.
