HIV/Hep C Exposure policy in HH?Register Today!
This is a discussion on HIV/Hep C Exposure policy in HH? in Home Health Nursing, part of Nursing Specialties ... I am wondering about your agency/company policies on HIV/Hep C exposure. Do you have consent forms...by SuzieeQ Aug 13, '12I am wondering about your agency/company policies on HIV/Hep C exposure.
Do you have consent forms for each client to sign, that gives the company consent to contact their physician in case of exposing a Nurse to HIV/Hep C?
Can some one explain the procedure for the management team when a Nurse is exposed to HIV/Hep C?
Print and share with friends and family.
