OSHA could fine your medical practice for failure to protect against bloodborne pathogens

Updated: Dec 10, 2021


OSHA regulations require employers to establish and maintain a control program outlining the protective measures used to eliminate or minimize workers' exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials.


It has been known that the organization has cited medical practice Orange Medical Care P.C. in Newburgh, N.Y., with fines totaling $44,800 for failing to protect its workers adequately against potential bloodborne pathogen hazards.


The inspection found that the medical practice lacked such a program to protect its workers and, a critical finding: The wrongful use of medical devices, repurposing and inadequate disposal of such.
