160.19 Procedures with respect to blood, body fluids and client contact.
All blood encountered in the workplace shall be treated as if it is infectious. Direct contact with blood should be avoided and disposable gloves used whenever such contact can be reasonably anticipated. In addition to any other statutory or regulatory procedures with respect to blood, body fluids and client contact, the following precautionary measures must be taken:
(a) Any disposable materials coming into contact with blood or body fluids, such as discharge from open sores, pimples and sebaceous glands shall be disposed of in a plastic bag which will be sealed in a manner that not only protects the licensee and the client but also others, such as sanitation workers, who may come into contact with the material.
(b) Any disposable sharp objects that come into contact with blood or other body fluids shall be disposed of in a sealable rigid container (punctureproof) that is strong enough to protect the licensee and the client or others from accidental cuts or puncture wounds that could happen during the disposal process.
(c) Plastic bags and sealable rigid containers shall be available for use at all times when services are being performed. Absence of containers shall be presumptive evidence of noncompliance.
(d) Any material used to stop the flow of blood shall be disposed of immediately after use in accord with subdivision (b) of this section, or shall be in liquid or powder form. The use of styptic pencils is strictly prohibited.
