This week you discovered that test results for a highly recognizable/highly influential member of the community came back positive for Syphilis. Our Lab Technician as well as the Physician of record decided not to do anything or say anything in an attempt to protect the patient
Are there mandatory reporting requirements that we have?
Are we required to report to the CDC (Center for Disease Control)? Are we required to report to the Florida Department of Health? If so, what is the administrative law that governs this? Do I need to be aware of any other laws? Please tell me about any forms that should have been filled out. Which of our employees was responsible for the state reporting piece? What rights does the patient have in this process?
Both the lab tech and physician are top performers for us. What HR action (if any) will you take regarding the way they handled this situation?
Yes the mandatory report that one can have to protect the patient is sufficient.
Based on various types of system for monitoring CDC influenza, hospital case reporting, syndrome surveillance, prevalence report, overall mortality rate and respiratory virus testing laboratory.The 2009 H1N1 influenza was important in gathering information for the admission of private hospitals during the World, the nature of the new strain of influenza, the nature of the ill effects of illness, and the risk of infection and the serious consequences of death are the most.
