Also, along with the code the laws as well. A technician can make sure the code is followed by doing his or her due diligence as a professional.

Introduction Infection control is the major concern in healthcare industrial. According to World Health Organization (WHO), infection prevention and control measures are to protect vulnerable group who might be acquire an infection both in the general community and while receiving care due to health problems, in a range of settings (World Health Organization, 2015). In perioperative setting, infection control is particularly important because surgical intervention provide a portal of entry for pathogenic microorganism as it interrupts skin integrity, which is the body’s first line defense against microorganisms. Poor infection control will lead to postoperative surgical site infection result in delayed recovery that lead to increased length
“One Health is the integrative effort of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment” (Musoke, Ndjjo, Atusingwize & Ali, 2016). Based on that statement, health care professionals are responsible for ensuring that the community is made aware if there is any outbreaks or threats and provide education to help the public understand how to protect themselves. Also, it is not a new concept that emerging infections have been introduced to communities; furthermore, human life has been treating by microbial as well as viruses for centuries. Diseases can be transmitted via different routes, and one of the routes that human gets exposed to disease is from animals which
List of health and safety laws and regulations in a veterinary practice The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the UK government body that is responsible for enforcing health and safety at the work legislation. The Control of Substance Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) This is a statutory law in the UK which states general requirements of employers to protect employees and other persons from those hazards that substances that are used at work can impose.

It requires that the proposals for research involving the use of animals must be fully assessed in terms of any harm to the animals. This involves detailed examination of the particular procedures and experiments, and the numbers and types of animal used. These are then weighed against the potential benefits of the project. This cost–benefit analysis is almost unique to UK animal research legislation; only German law has a similar requirement. This new policy ensures that the use of animals is permissible as long as it is approved by the necessary agencies and standards of animal welfare and care.
Moreover, it should be legible and should be in chronological order. All entries in record books will be dated and signed by the nurses immediately after the care. Because of the busy nature of work, nurses can use abbreviations from the approved list only. All the written data should be kept in a single place about a patient and should be monitored in regular intervals. Nurses should never record anything on behalf of someone else.
It involves a deep knowledge of the legal normative of the state. For that reasons in all type of event, even in the smallest one, it has to be carefully managed and controlled. It is also important to know the current regulation about workers (the need a regular contract) and volunteers. All the employees’ need a medical insurance or everything that the regulation explained is necessary. This is mainly because, if an accident happens without respecting the regulation, a very bad publicity occurred.
Patient teaching is the most significant nursing intervention in the healthcare setting. Effective patient teaching is very important because it helps the patient to prevent or minimize complication and ensure quality outcomes. I believe, it important including patient teaching as routine nursing care because it increases quality patient care the healthcare setting. Another important thing I have noticed in the intra-operative room was maintaining the sterile field and managing the risk factors in the operative environment. Everyone who enters an OR wear personal protective equipment (mask, non-powdered gloves, gown and head covering) because in the OR patients are at risk for impaired skin tissue integrity, infection, anxiety, altered body temperature, and dehydration.
