There must be disposable gloves in each classroom. Universal Precautions’ signs must be posted in a visible place in every room.
How To Take Gloves Off. Take the cuff of one glove turning it inside out, as it is being pulled off your hand, this will put the 1 st dirty glove into the 2 nd gloved hand. As you’re pulling the other glove off by the cuff, it will automatically capture the 1 st dirty glove and it will be inside out so no contaminated surface will be exposed.
Blood And Body Fluids All blood and body fluids must be considered to be potentially infected. Contact custodians to clean up any blood and/or body fluid spills. A fresh solution 1 part bleach and 10 parts water may be used for decontamination. Please do not attempt to clean up any blood or body fluid spills yourself.
OSHA Guidelines Universal Precautions must be used for any First Aid procedure. Report incidents of contact with another person’s body fluid, if you have an open wound, or there is any contact to your eyes, or mouth. Also, report any needle stick exposure. These reports should be made to your Supervisor/Principal/School Nurse. Complete form ‘Blood or Body Fluid Exposure.’ An employee has the option of being tested and vaccinated for Hepatitis B post exposure (within 24 hours according to OSHA).
Defibrillator/AED Info Be sure that you know the location of the AED in your building(s). When the cabinet door that contains the AED is opened an alarm will sound. When the cabinet door is closed the alarm will deactivate. If you need to get the AED be sure and also get the child size pads, and small black zipper bag. The AED has an automated voice component, which will begin instructions once machine is turned on. This is what our AED looks like.
Med Kit Locations If you don’t know where your school med- kit is, contact the nurse and he/she will tell you.
Fanny Packs All elementary school’s lunchtime assistants and teachers on recess duty should have a Fanny Pack containing supplies for minor playground injuries. Please see school nurse for these supplies.
The best prevention against communicable disease is to wash hands with soap for at least 20-30 seconds. Try to get your students to use hand sanitizers. Also, you should do the same. Antibacterial wipes are also good items to use to wash the desks daily.
Make sure that when you sneeze or cough you do it in your upper sleeve so that way you don’t spread germs. If you sneeze in your hands and touch something, you will spread germs. It is recommended that students are taught this same procedure to eliminate the spread of germs.
The school corporation will pay for a series of three immunizations. Let your school nurse know if you are interested in receiving these immunizations. Hepatitis B
