Infection Control-Related Administrative Policies and Work Restrictions

Course Number: 473


Adverse reactions to latex products in the oral healthcare setting can result in potentially serious health problems. A reasonable reduction of latex products should be considered for the protection of both OHCP and the patient. OHCP with acute or chronic medical conditions should consult with their personal physician to determine if their medical condition might affect their ability to safely perform their duties. Policies dealing with work restrictions should be written and clearly communicated through education and training.
