Certain health risks come with working in any health care facility, and specific precautions must be taken to minimize those risks. It is important to do all you can to safeguard your health as well as the health of your patients and of your family.
Frequent hand washing and vaccination against communicable diseases provides additional protection. Enterprise policy A03-005 outlines the required compliance items established to help protect the health of employees and patients. Compliance is mandatory for all health care employees and health sciences employees who work in a patient care facility.
UK HealthCare employees are required to visit Employee Health annually during their birth month for a TB screening and compliance review appointment. Read more about TB screening.
