METHODS OF IMPLEMENTATION AND CONTROL Universal Precautions: All employees will utilize universal precautions. Exposure Control Plan Employees covered by the bloodborne pathogens standard receive an explanation of this ECP during their initial training session. It will also be reviewed in their annual refresher training. All employees can review this plan at any time during their work shifts. This ECP is available for viewing by our employees 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and will be kept at the report desk at station 1 and in the office at station 2. If requested, we will provide an employee with their own copy of the ECP free of charge and within 15 days of the request. This ECP is also available for viewing online on our department website at Kyle Starr (or current infection control officer) is responsible for reviewing and updating the ECP annually or more frequently if necessary to reflect any new or modified tasks and procedures that affect occupational exposure and to reflect new or revised employee positions with occupational exposure. Engineering Controls and Work Practices Engineering controls and work practice controls will be used to prevent or minimize exposure to bloodborne pathogens. The specific engineering controls and work practice controls used are listed below:
5 Needless access IV drip sets, sharps containers, ProtectIVPlus IV catheters, Safety IV catheters, pre-filled saline flushes (to avoid having to draw up saline with a needle in a moving ambulance), waterless hand sanitizer. Sharps disposal containers are inspected and maintained or replaced by all field paramedics during their weekly inspection/inventory (at minimum) or whenever necessary to prevent overfilling. The key to unlock the sharps container cabinet is located on each ambulance s ignition key ring. This facility identifies the need for changes in engineering controls and work practices through: OSHA recommendations Employee safety concerns and recommendations Local, state and federal guidelines Suggestions from our department medical director Review of published reports and studies We review new products and procedures regularly by: Putting together written proposals or recommendations and directing them to the EMS chief Bringing up suggestions at our monthly department meetings for discussion Sampling or performing trials with proposed equipment Reviewing product reviews and literature Discussing proposed equipment or procedures with other healthcare professions Both front-line workers and management officials are involved in this process by: Putting together proposals and directing them to the EMS chief Bringing up ideas at department meetings Bringing up ideas to department officers All levels of employees are encouraged to voice ideas, comments or concerns The EMS chief has the authority to implement recommendations. The infection control officer is responsible for ensuring that approved recommendations are implemented. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) PPE is provided to our employees at no cost to them. Training in the use of the appropriate PPE for specific tasks or procedures is provided by the infection control officer, training officer or EMS chief. The types of PPE available to employees are as follows: Examination gloves (latex-free), N95 masks, surgical masks w/face shields, safety goggles, safety glasses, gowns, rescue gloves, rescue helmets w/goggles. PPE is located on every emergency response vehicle (limited equipment is kept on the bicycle) and may be obtained by any employee as needed. All employees will be shown where PPE is
6 located on our vehicles and in the station as part of their orientation process. It is the responsibility of training officer, infection control officer and EMS chief to ensure that all employees are shown this during their orientation. It is the duty of all department paramedics and EMT s to ensure that PPE is stocked on each ambulance as required. All employees using PPE must observe the following precautions: Wash hands immediately or as soon as feasible after removing gloves or other PPE. Remove PPE after it becomes contaminated and before leaving the work area. Used PPE may be disposed of in the trash receptacle in each ambulance. If soaked with blood to the point where it can be wrung out, place the contaminated item in a red bag and take it to Northern Rockies Medical Center as soon as possible for disposal. Wear medical gloves when it is reasonably anticipated that there may be hand contact with blood or OPIM, and when handling or touching contaminated items or surfaces; replace gloves if torn, punctured or contaminated, or if their ability to function as a barrier is compromised. Utility gloves may be decontaminated for reuse if their integrity is not compromised; discard utility gloves if they show signs of cracking, peeling, tearing, puncturing, or deterioration. Never wash or decontaminate disposable gloves for reuse! Wear appropriate face and eye protection when splashes, sprays, spatters, or droplets of blood or OPIM pose a hazard to the eye, nose, or mouth. Remove immediately or as soon as feasible any garment contaminated by blood or OPIM, in such a way as to avoid contact with the outer surface. The procedure for handling used PPE is as follows: Discard PPE not soaked in blood in the trash receptacle in each ambulance. If soaked with blood, place the contaminated item in a red biohazard bag (kept in the cabinet to the right of the narcotics cabinet) and take to Northern Rockies Medical Center as soon as possible for disposal. Reusable PPE items can be decontaminated at the station at the sink in the vehicle bay. Proper disinfectant, plastic wash bins, and other decontamination equipment will be kept at the sink or in the cabinet underneath the sink for use by employees. Housekeeping Regulated waste is placed in containers which are closable, constructed to contain all contents and prevent leakage, appropriately labeled or color-coded (see the following section "Labels"), and closed prior to removal to prevent spillage or protrusion of contents during handling.
7 The procedure for handling sharps disposal containers is: Close and secure the safety closure once the container is full and no longer serviceable. Take the full sharps container to the lab at Northern Rockies Medical Center and place in the large sharps container under the center work island in the lab. If you need assistance, as a member of nursing staff to help you locate it. The procedure for handling other regulated waste is: First ensure that the waste is properly bagged, take to the lab at Northern Rockies Medical Center for disposal. Ask nursing staff for assistance if necessary. Contaminated sharps are discarded immediately or as soon as possible in containers that are closable, puncture-resistant, leak proof on sides and bottoms, and appropriately labeled or colorcoded. Sharps disposal containers are available in each ambulance and are mounted in a set location. Smaller sharps containers are also located in each ALS bag and in the wilderness bag. Bins and pails (e.g., wash or emesis basins) are cleaned and decontaminated as soon as feasible after visible contamination. Broken glassware that may be contaminated will only picked up using mechanical means, such as a brush and dustpan. Laundry The following contaminated articles will be laundered by this company: Pillowcases Burrito Blankets Sheets / Blankets Uniform items Towels Laundering will be performed by Glacier County EMS on an as-needed basis. The following laundering requirements must be met: handle contaminated laundry as little as possible, with minimal agitation place wet contaminated laundry in leak-proof, labeled or color-coded containers before transport. Use (specify either red bags or bags marked with the biohazard symbol) for this purpose. wear the following PPE when handling and/or sorting contaminated laundry: Medical gloves, gown (if heavily contaminated), safety glasses Labels The following labeling methods are used in this facility: Sharps containers will be labeled per OSHA guidelines. Properly labeled biohazard bags will be utilized per OSHA guidelines.
8 All paramedics are responsible for ensuring that warning labels are affixed or red bags are used as required if regulated waste or contaminated equipment is brought into the facility. Employees are to notify the EMS chief or officer-in-charge (OIC) if they discover regulated waste containers, refrigerators containing blood or OPIM, contaminated equipment, etc., without proper labels. HEPATITIS B VACCINATION The Glacier County Health Nurse will provide training to employees on hepatitis B vaccinations, addressing safety, benefits, efficacy, methods of administration, and availability. The hepatitis B vaccination series is available at no cost after initial employee training and within 10 days of initial assignment to all employees identified in the exposure determination section of this plan. Vaccination is encouraged unless: 1) documentation exists that the employee has previously received the series; 2) antibody testing reveals that the employee is immune; or 3) medical evaluation shows that vaccination is contraindicated. However, if an employee declines the vaccination, the employee must sign a declination form. Employees who decline may request and obtain the vaccination at a later date at no cost. Documentation of refusal of the vaccination is kept on file by the infection control officer. Vaccination will be provided by the Glacier County Health Department at 1210 E. Main Street, Cut Bank, MT. Their telephone number is Following the medical evaluation, a copy of the health care professional's written opinion will be obtained and provided to the employee within 15 days of the completion of the evaluation. It will be limited to whether the employee requires the hepatitis vaccine and whether the vaccine was administered. POST-EXPOSURE EVALUATION AND FOLLOW-UP Should an exposure incident occur, contact the infection control officer at If unreachable, contact the EMS chief at or EMS1 or the officer-in-charge via dispatch at An immediately available confidential medical evaluation and follow-up will be conducted by the on-duty ER provider at Northern Rockies Medical Center. Following initial first aid (clean the wound, flush eyes or other mucous membrane, etc.), the following activities will be performed: Document the routes of exposure and how the exposure occurred. Identify and document the source individual (unless the employer can establish that identification is infeasible or prohibited by state or local law). Obtain consent and make arrangements to have the source individual tested as soon as possible to determine HIV, HCV, and HBV infectivity; document that the source individual's test results were conveyed to the employee's health care provider.
9 If the source individual is already known to be HIV, HCV and/or HBV positive, new testing need not be performed. Assure that the exposed employee is provided with the source individual's test results and with information about applicable disclosure laws and regulations concerning the identity and infectious status of the source individual (e.g., laws protecting confidentiality). After obtaining consent, collect exposed employee's blood as soon as feasible after exposure incident, and test blood for HBV and HIV serological status If the employee does not give consent for HIV serological testing during collection of blood for baseline testing, preserve the baseline blood sample for at least 90 days; if the exposed employee elects to have the baseline sample tested during this waiting period, perform testing as soon as feasible. ADMINISTRATION OF POST-EXPOSURE EVALUATION AND FOLLOW-UP Infection control officer or EMS chief ensures that health care professional(s) responsible for employee's hepatitis B vaccination and post-exposure evaluation and follow-up are given a copy of OSHA's bloodborne pathogens standard. Infection control officer or EMS chief ensures that the health care professional evaluating an employee after an exposure incident receives the following: a description of the employee's job duties relevant to the exposure incident route(s) of exposure circumstances of exposure if possible, results of the source individual's blood test relevant employee medical records, including vaccination status Infection control officer or EMS chief provides the employee with a copy of the evaluating health care professional's written opinion within 15 days after completion of the evaluation. PROCEDURES FOR EVALUATING THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING AN EXPOSURE INCIDENT Infection control officer and/or EMS chief will review the circumstances of all exposure incidents to determine: engineering controls in use at the time work practices followed a description of the device being used (including type and brand) protective equipment or clothing that was used at the time of the exposure incident (gloves, eye shields, etc.) location of the incident (O.R., E.R., patient room, etc.) procedure being performed when the incident occurred employee's training
10 Infection control officer will record all percutaneous injuries from contaminated sharps in a Sharps Injury Log. If revisions to this ECP are necessary, the infection control officer will make recommendations that appropriate changes are made.
