15
Universal Precautions
  • Universal Precautions is an approach to infection
    control. According to the concept of Universal
    Precautions, all human blood and certain human
    body fluids are treated as if known to be
    infectious for HIV, HBV, and other bloodborne
    pathogens.

16
Universal Precautions
  • Assume infectious
  • Blood
  • Other potentially infectious materials (OPIM)
  • Semen, vaginal secretions, cerebrospinal fluid,
    synovial fluid, pleural fluid, pericardial fluid,
    peritoneal fluid, amniotic fluid, saliva in
    dental procedures, any body fluid visibly
    contaminated with blood
  • When differentiation between body fluids is
    difficult or impossible, consider potentially
    infectious

17
Universal Precautions
  • Personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Cleaning procedures
  • Post-exposure evaluation, follow-up

18
Universal Precautions - PPE

Universal Precautions Cleaning Procedures
  • Use paper towels to wipe, disinfect
  • Cover large spills with paper towels or absorbent
    and pour disinfectant on
  • Contact times keep wet with disinfectant

  • 3M 5L Quat, Virex 10 minutes
  • Clean with general purpose cleaner, if needed

23
Universal Precautions Cleaning Procedures
  • Secure waste and dispose properly
  • Blood, OPIM waste in biohazard box (health room)
  • Discard porous materials that cannot be laundered
  • Wash hands

24
Universal Precautions Post-Exposure
  • Free medical evaluation, follow-up for any
    employee with blood-exposure incident
  • A blood exposure incident is a specific eye,
    nose, mouth, other mucous membrane, non-intact
    skin, or parenteral (piercing) contact with blood
    or other potentially infectious materials
    resulting from the performance of an employee's
    duties

25
