in Yourself: Add Value to You
By Walt Grassl
From the ADAA ONLINE 24/7....
Flu season is upon us …
Your patient is sneezing and coughing. A coworker
is complaining of feeling "dead tired," has a headache, cough, and feels hot. Exactly how should dental offices
deal with these situations? Public health leaders in most countries continue to launch full efforts educating people to
recognize and control the spread of respiratory infections. Dental assistants play a vital role in strategies to keep respiratory
illness out of the dental office.
Dental healthcare workers will undoubtedly be exposed to seasonal strains
of influenza. Every dental team member must take necessary precautions to avoid illness, maintain a safe office environment
for both the dental team and its patients, and keep current on new strains of influenza and other respiratory illnesses.
Dental offices should implement a program for screening patients for aerosol transmitted diseases (ATD). Understanding
the risks and how to deal with them can avoid panic, illness and even death.
