I’ve been in Dentistry my entire adult life and I can honestly say I’ve never met a dental professional that would knowingly violate OSHA safety and infection control procedures.
On the other hand, I have observed many questionable practices when it comes to sterilization and infection control. In those cases, I suggest a trained OSHA Safety Officer evaluate their protocols.
I was in Tulsa, Oklahoma, March 29, 2013, the day the story broke about W. Scott Harrington, DDS, the oral surgeon who exposed more than 7000 patients to HIV, hepatitis C and hepatitis B. As I understand it, he had entrusted responsibility of infection control and sterilization to his team. None-the-less, he was responsible.
Are your infection control protocols up to date? When was the last time you reviewed protocols as a team and tuned up your efforts? Well here’s your chance!! Join Pat Pine, RDH and I for ‘Stealth Safety – Staying safe in today’s busy dental practice’, a webinar for our Mastermind clients, on February 19 at 1pm EST.
