Infection control manual
MetadataShow full item record
Dental schools due to their vast heterogeneous patient population, are becoming increasingly concerned about infection control. The potential for cross contamination at such a facility is great and should not be overlooked. Care should be given to not only protect patients, but also faculty, staff and students. It is imperative that this issue be formally addressed in order to more adequately serve the public. A survey was sent to 68 dental schools across the United States and Canada. A 74% return rate was established. 59% of those surveyed acknowledged that they maintained a written infection control protocol.Further questioning focused on specific infection control practices. 13% responded that they did require students to be vaccinated against Hepatitis B. Reinforced by these statistics, an infection control manual was written for B.U.S.G.D. It is a framework to which further information can be added or deleted. It is a basic for standardizing procedures within one dental school.
