For those of you at Free-standing children's hospitals:
How does your hospital handle Employee (adult) Blood/Body Fluid Exposure?
1. Are these Employees seen/treated (post-exposure prophylaxis) in the PED?
2. Does Employee Health handle this outside of the PED? 24/7?
3. Are these Employees transferred to an Adult ED? Urgent care center? Other?
4. If treated handled in the PED, how much is done by the physician vs. nursing or consultant?
Thanks so much for your input. Feel free to respond to me directly.
