Released:
February 22, 2005
Updated:
February 19, 2012


"An Act relating to safety devices and sharp instruments for the prevention of the spread of bloodborne pathogens in health care employees; and providing for an effective date. "


"The risks associated with bloodborne pathogen exposure demand clear and consistent standards throughout health care organizations in Alaska."
- Rep. Wilson

 

This bill repeals two exemptions from Alaska's bloodborne pathogen protection standards to bring Alaska standards into compliance with federal standards. The bill removes exemptions for intraoral procedures and for health care organizations with fewer than 25 full-time employees. Removing these exemptions is not expected to have a significant impact, as most of these organizations have already made the necessary efforts to minimize exposure to bloodborne pathogens by complying with state and federal standards. The risks associated with bloodborne pathogen exposure demand clear and consistent standards throughout health care organizations in Alaska.
