We have been using virtual care for some of our BBF exposure management.  The goal is to use them for after-hours exposures to reduce the impact on the ED.  We have found that training the VVUC providers is critical, as this is a different process for them.  We provided a 30-minute training for staff with a PowerPoint they can refer back to and had them manage for several months some exposures that occurred while we were open so that they could consult with our providers.  It is still a work in progress, but it is a wonderful concept; do not underestimate the importance of provider trainings and specifying workflows (e.g. how workers are notified of source and baseline results).  Cheers, Tim

Subject: [MCOH-EH] Virtual Visits


I’m interested to know if any of you have implemented virtual visits or epic video visits for the management of body fluid exposures. Can you kindly share your experiences?

Thank you.
