OSHA's bloodborne pathogens standard: a review of physician office compliance after the first year.
Med Staff Couns. 1993 Fall; 7(4):1-8.MS

Abstract

In May 1993, medical practices for the first time were required to review their bloodborne pathogens programs for compliance with a 1991 standard issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The standard has a commendable purpose--to enhance the protection afforded workers exposed to potentially infectious materials. Yet its requirements have caused fear and confusion among physicians. This article details the provisions of the bloodborne pathogens standard and outlines some of the reasons physicians have found its implementation troublesome.
