HOS: Hospital Decontamination
This course was developed to meet the requirements of the OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response standard, 29CFR1910.120 for those hospital employees who may be involved in receiving victims of a mass-casualty event. The program is designed to provide background, drill and resources for “first receivers” at a health care facility. The program covers vulnerability assessments, Emergency Management Plans and provides opportunity for a drill using equipment that is available at the facility where you will provide training. The facilities for decon will vary, from a single room in a facility, to the availability of a heated and plumbed external tent.
