1 CE – Administrators and Nurses
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 thanks 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 Pharmaceutical 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.
Please forward this invitation to others within your facility that are involved in waste removal or that deals with hazardous waste.
