Dear All,

We are reviewing our preplacement medical evaluations for HCWs.

We may not require a hands-on physical exam for all staff, and may base that on actual injury rates by department, etc. For all HCWs, we will review their pre-placement questionnaire (for indications to do a hands-on physical exam) vaccines, etc.

I am curious as to what others of you may be doing to make the process more streamlined, yet effective?

Thank you,
