Quote from career seeker
I dont know what state you are in but the state of Alaska OSHA requires that employers provide safety-engineered sharps devices to employees. If they do not provide these they may be out of compliance with OSHA...big trouble!
OSHA everywhere requires safety-engineered devices!!! I've never used the mad-as-h*ll smilie before, but :angryfire !!!! :angryfire !!!!
What's your setting? Hospital? LTC?
Who's responsible for Infection Control where you work? If that person is an RN, she should be drawn and quartered and answering to the Boards of Health and Nursing in your state for allowing such a dangerous situation to exist.
Who "validates" you for reimbursement from M'Care? Are you JCAHO accredited? CMS?
Where is your CNO??
Some states would require that a root-cause analysis be done to correct process errors -- Does your state have mandatory reporting?
And there are no
pens available??? Unbelievable.
I hope that somehow this current situation can quickly lead to change --
