Blood-Borne Pathogen Exposure
Possible Blood-Borne Pathogen Exposure?

- Notify your instructor at the time of the exposure.
- Call or go to the JBT Health & Wellnes Center. If for any reason the JBT Health & Wellness Center is not available go to the Emergency Room.
All OHSU students and postdoctoral fellows who have an occupational exposure to blood or body substances or other communicable diseases are to seek treatment and document the exposure via the
Confidential Incident/Quality Concern Report.
It is the responsibility of the student and/or postdoctoral fellow's supervisor or instructor to relieve the student/postdoc from their current assignment to allow for prompt post-exposure assessment and treatment as needed.
