Eyewash stations continue to confuse and confound healthcare organizations (HCO). Not only can they pose infection control and safety issues for workers, they can be a point of contention between HCOs and surveyors, who often seem to work by different sets of rules.

During this 90-minute webinar, former hospital administrator and accreditation expert John R. Rosing, MHA, FACHE, will explain what regulators like CMS, The Joint Commission, and OSHA expect from an HCO’s eyewash stations. He will provide the steps personnel can take to keep staff safe and the organization in compliance with rules and regulations. Attendees will learn how to avoid eyewash-related regulatory compliance issues, how to perform a risk assessment to determine when an eyewash station is necessary, and what type of eyewash station they need.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Avoid eyewash-related regulatory compliance issues
  • Perform a risk assessment to determine when an eyewash station is needed
