COVID-19 and Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control Plan:
Exposure to COVID-19 and Bloodborne Pathogens is a real and present concern in many pharmacies; therefore, it is critical to have an Exposure Control Plan (ECP) for your employees’ and patients’ health. OSHA requires employers to comply with the Bloodborne Pathogen Standard that protects employees from potential infection when employees have a reasonably anticipated risk of exposure to COVID-19 and bloodborne pathogens. Having an Exposure Control Plan in place is required and may help prevent an incident and mitigate healthcare costs and fines a pharmacy may be forced to pay when there is an exposure incident. The program is also designed to help Community Pharmacy (with exposure risk beyond dispensing of prescriptions by pharmacists in retail settings) meet OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).
THE COVID-19 AND BLOODBORNE PATHOGEN EXPOSURE CONTROL PLAN IS AVAILABLE AS AN INDIVIDUAL PURCHASE FOR ONLY $192 PER YEAR!
Here are some of the services Pharmacies provide that could potentially expose employees to bloodborne pathogens or COVID-19:
- Receiving vials for refills
- Cash register operations
- Pharmacy Cleaning
- Point of care testing
- Patient Assessments
- Patient training on diagnostic equipment (including glucose monitors)
