1 CORPORATE AND CLINICAL GOVERNANCE HUMAN RESOURCES INJURY ON DUTY & NEEDLE STICKS INJURY NO: 1 Prepared by Human Resource & Clinical Risk Department Approved by NRC revision by Clinical Governance Approval Date April 2009 Review Date April 2011 Version 1.2 1

2 POLICY IN RESPECT OF INJURY ON DUTY 1. What is an Occupational Injury (ACCIDENT?) It is an occurrence of which a date, time and place can be determined that arises out of and in the course of an employee's employment and resulting in personal injury. 2. Which Occupational Injuries (ACCIDENTS) must be reported All occupational injuries or alleged occupational injuries that entail medical expenses and/or absence from work for more than three days must be reported within seven days in the prescribed manner (see paragraph 3). Please note that the above include needle stick injuries. The latter will involve a different process to be followed (see Annexure A). The delay to report an accident or alleged accident is a criminal offence. The Commissioner may also impose a penalty on the employer which could be the full amount of the claim. An employee who fails to report an injury on duty may face disciplinary action. 3. Procedure when reporting an Occupational Injury (ACCIDENT) The unit leader or other senior person who is present at the time of the accident must ensure that a W.CI.2 (employer s report of an accident) form is given to the employee to complete. Where no senior person is available the employee must obtain the form. Step 1: The unit leader or any other senior person must complete the report of an accident form (Annexure B) and sign this form as a declaration that the information provided is true and correct. The information provided on this form will facilitate the completion of the W.CI.2 form. Step 2: The unit manager or any other senior employee must complete points 1 38 and points of "PART A page 1" of the W.CI.2 form. The unit manager or any other senior person must sign the declaration by the employer and also complete the date. The employer registration number must be completed in the block provided. The number is 0733/388/210. 2

3 Step 3: Detach "PART B page 1" where perforated and forward it without delay to the doctor or hospital concerned. In minor cases, "PART B page 1" must accompany the employee. Where possible a First Medical Report W.CI. 4 should accompany the W.CI.2. The First Medical Report W.CI. 4 must be forwarded to HR as soon as possible. The claim will only be considered once the Commissioner has received both the W.CI.2 and W.CI. 4. Step 4: The original completed W.CI.2 form must be forwarded to Human Resources without delay. Human Resources will complete points of "PART A", page 2 in full and where possible accompanied by a First Medical Report W.CI. 4. The documentation will then be forwarded to The Compensation Commissioner. 4. General Upon receipt of the Employer's Report of an Occupational injury and a First Medical Report the claim will be considered. If liability is accepted, a postcard addressed to the employer indicating the claim number will be forwarded. If liability cannot at that stage be accepted an acknowledgement card will be addressed to the employer, providing the claim number allocated. The claim number allocated must be quoted on all correspondence relating to the injury as this will greatly facilitate the filing of correspondence and relevant document on the appropriate file and will expedite finalisation of the claim. The basic information to identify a claim is as follows: The registered trade name and registration number as registered with the Commissioner. The full names and surname of the injured employee (not nicknames). The employee's identity number/personnel number and date of birth. The date the occupational injury was sustained. The above mentioned information is captured on the computer and any discrepancies can result in duplication of claims, or that documents cannot be associated with an existing claim. 3

4 5. What is an occupational disease? It is a disease arising out of and contracted in the course of an employee's employment and which is listed in Schedule 3 to the Act. 6. Procedure when reporting an Occupational Disease The unit manager or any other senior employee must within 14 days after he/she gained knowledge of an alleged occupational disease complete a W.CI.1 (E) form (Employer's Report of an Occupational Disease) and forward it to the Human Resources Department. The commencement of the disease shall be the date on which the doctor first diagnosed the illness. The occupational disease will be processed in the same way as discussed above. 7. Dispatch of further documents Occupational Injuries (ACCIDENTS) When the First Medical Report W.CI.4 was not forwarded together with the employer's report of an occupational injury, it must be obtained without delay and submitted to the HR Department. In cases of prolonged absence, a Progress Medical report W.CI.5 must be obtained monthly from the medical practitioner and submitted to the HR Department. When the employee resumes work, the HR Department should be notified immediately. The employee must obtain a Final Medical Report W.CI.5 from the medical practitioner and forward the Final Medical Report to the HR Department. The HR Department will complete a Resumption Report W.CI.6. The Resumption Report W.CI.6 will be submitted to the Commissioner together with the Final Medical Report. The Employer's Report of an Occupational Injury must not be kept in abeyance awaiting the medical report. The medical reports must not be kept in abeyance until the employee's condition has stabilized or when he has resumed work. 8. FORMS Forms that are required for accidents/occupational diseases can be obtained from the HR Department. Copies in the OHS file. 4

5 Annexure A MANAGEMENT OF NEEDLE STICK INJURY / EXPOSURE TO BLOOD / BODY FLUIDS 1. INTRODUCTION It has become necessary to introduce a policy to manage the treatment of NRC medical staff and students who have sustained accidental injuries/exposure to blood and blood stained body fluids in the course of their duties. It is considered very important to start anti - HIV medication within 1 hour of injury. If not done, it is still valuable to start up to approximately 24 hours after the injury. All unit staff is offered the Hepatitis B vaccination regime or booster when signing their contract with NRC. It is the staff member s responsibility to make an informed decision whether to follow NRS s recommendation or not. At the moment there is no vaccination or post exposure prophylaxis for Hepatitis C but an employee exposed must be tested and followed up closely and who becomes antibody positive must receive treatment with anti-viral agents, under specialist guidance, as soon as possible e.g. Pegylated Interferon, Ribaviran and Lamivudine. This has been shown to improve outcomes. Managing patients on dialysis is a high risk job for HIV, hepatitis B and C. It is advisable (as per the NRC employment pack) that all employees working in our units are tested and know their status prior to taking up employment. This will ensure your safety and that of our patients. All units must have a clear plan of action in case of injury i.e. closest casualty, doctor that will be treating the staff member. This will ensure that all possible treatment is done within the window period. Details of plan to be displayed on the OHS notice board. (Annexure D) 2. DEFINITIONS 2.1 Accidental Injury/Exposure include: 5 Needle-stick injuries. Injury with other sharp objects which are stained by blood or blood stained body fluids. Splashes of blood/blood stained body fluids into the eyes and mouth. Exposure of non-intact skin to blood or blood stained body fluids.

6 2.2 Source Person: A person whose blood or blood-stained body fluids have come into contact with a staff or student. If the source person is unknown, the term source person unknown shall be used. 2.3 Accident area: The site of the injury. 2.4 Immediate care area: The area where emergency management of the injured student or staff member is carried out, i.e. the Unit, Hospital, Casualty. 2.5 Hospital: Will be the hospital closest to the where the unit is situated. 3.
