Emergency department, which is where such exposures usually occur after hours so it works well.

Hi team,
I have a favor to ask the group.

I am reviewing the afterhours coverage for healthcare exposure (meningococcal, ATD, blood) and would greatly appreciate to hear about your site set up.

Who covers post exposure evaluation and treatment for meningococcal or blood borne after hours and weekends?

a)    Emergency department

b)    Infectious Control on call

c)     Pharmacy -Standing order per hospital protocol

d)    Occupational Medicine

e)     Nurse with standing order

Your response is greatly appreciated.  I will share the results once I receive them.

Thank you,
