Overview

This portable guide clearly explains how to minimize the risk of injury or illness while providing health care. Safety and Infection Control covers electrical and fire hazards, injuries resulting from moving or lifting patients, needlestick injuries, and hospital-acquired infections in patients. Find out about infection transmission modes - and how to break the chain of infection, isolation precautions for a wide range of diseases, proper handwashing, cleaning, and sterilization procedures, and the latest CDC and OSHA guidelines for health care workers. Safety and Infection Control counsels you about measures to take if you have special health concerns, such as chronic illness, immunocompromise, or pregnancy, what to do after possible exposure to HIV, and which immunizations to get - and how often.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Penny Wolfe Moore, RNC, PhD (Southwestern Adventist University)
Description: This spiral bound paperback contains information for healthcare workers about how to protect themselves and clients from injury and disease.
Purpose: The authors believe that "information and education are the primary keys to reducing risks." To this end, they have presented a comprehensive examination of safety and infection control issues in an easy-to-use format.
Audience: Safety officers, infection control committees, and managers in any healthcare facility will find this a valuable desktop reference. Students and faculty in any healthcare field will enjoy this book.
Features: Black-and-white photos and line drawing illustrations are strategically placed to facilitate understanding. There is minimal repetition, but when it does occur, it is necessary for complete understanding. There is no table of contents but the index is complete. Special flags draw attention to clinical tips and warnings.
Assessment: Many health profession programs (nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy) will find this an excellent teaching/learning tool. It provides a complete guide for managers, safety officers, and infection control committees when developing policy and preparing in-service programs. Discussions of the major regulatory bodies include information needed to protect patients and employees and get prepared for inspection visits. Every healthcare facility (hospital, nursing home, home health, and clinic) should consider this publication for a reference and practice guide. Skills labs and university libraries will find this an excellent addition to their holdings. When students discover this book it will be in high demand.
