At one of my jobs, they are now saying that it is the nurses responsibility to supply their own gloves, hand santizer, hand soap etc.
Agencies/Employers must provide PPE under federal law (OSHA
). No one remembers the seeming duplcitous Bloodborne Pathogen education/CEU/in-service for both
OSHA and a BoN approved providers to be/remain employed?
If you complain, as someone did at one of my agencies, OSHA contacts, requests proof of PPE purchases over the past three years, and monitors compliance going forward. We were still documenting purchase/usage up to a year after the OSHA inspection IIRC.
