Providing You with the Clinical Support You Need to Motivate Change & Improve Safety

Motivating facilities to address putting protective controls for toilet plume aerosols in place requires the support of clinical evidence. Especially since neither the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, nor USP 800 specifically address requirements for employee protection for toilet plume aerosols, it is important that we let experience and the scientific literature guide us to safer practices and better environments.

Over the years, dozens of papers and clinical guidelines have been published characterizing occupational and environmental risks of aeration and contamination of bloodborne and infectious disease and hazardous chemicals like chemotherapy drugs.

More than 25% of post-flush cultures test positive for infectious microorganisms that can cause healthcare associated infections to patients, personnel, or visitors, including Enterococcus faecalis, E. faecium, and C. difficile.
