In order to be effective, whoever is responsible for medical compliance and training within your practice or center must have the right tools. Without this, managing compliance training may become a distraction from more important job duties and may not achieve the required compliance.
New employees must receive compliance training such as safety orientation, Bloodborne Pathogens, and Fire Safety and Hazardous Communication to avoid costly fines and to help prevent employee injuries. Existing staff, including physicians, must also receive annual compliance training and be given an opportunity to participate in discussions regarding sharps injury prevention on no less than an annual basis.
