Significant Changes Coming for Health Care Facilities
Date: Wednesday, May 15, 2019
Webinar time: 12:00PM – 1:00PM Central
1.0 CE for CEU credit for both nurses (AANAC) and administrators (NCERS/NAB)
Due to the urgency of this topic, we are presenting a regulatory update.
Health care facilities that provide a host of health care-related services, or distribute, sell, or dispense pharmaceuticals, will need to learn a whole new set of regulations due to a finalized new rule promulgated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The new rule revises management standards for hazardous waste pharmaceuticals (HWPs) for health care facilities including nursing, skilled nursing, and inpatient hospice facilities.
At the completion of this program you will be able to:
- understand and comply with the four significant and practical changes in the management of pharmaceuticals
- identify the applicability, score, management and exemptions of the new Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals Rule
- understand additional Biohazardous Waste Requirements in health care facilities, including new infections control regulations and strategies for compliance
Join Dr. Jim Wooddell, President of Dominion Enterprises as he reviews these significant changes and provides guidance on the most effective ways to achieve compliance.
