Managed care plans have started checking for physician compliance with
OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standard. Plans are looking for docs
compliance eith the annual education, exposure control plan and
Hepatitis B vaccination. All physician practices must comply by law,
or face stiff penalties (up to $7,000.00!!!!!).
However, there are some exemptions for some of the doctors depending
on the legal set-up of your practice.
I was referred to the following site and reccommend that all docs
rush there for easy compliance (or, if you're lucky, an exemption from
this annual nightmare!!!).
I thought this was a one-time requirement in 1992, but I was
wrong...It's EVERY YEAR!!!!
