There is a patient with a communicable disease on our unit...
now what?

In the event of a confirmed communicable disease exposure on your unit or facility, the Provincial Workplace Health Call Centre will be notified by either the Infection Control department at your site or by Public Health and the exposure criteria and risk to employees will be determined. 

If follow up is needed for employees, the managers of the affected departments will be notified by the Provincial Workplace Health Call Centre with follow up instructions. 

As per instructions given to the managers, employees who have been notified to contact the Provincial Workplace Health Call Centre are to do so at 1-866-922-9464 (select Option 1) to speak with an Occupational Health Nurse for a full assessment of the exposure. 

The Occupational Health Nurse will confirm when you had contact with the source person, will review the exposure criteria with you, and will discuss follow up recommendations if you meet the exposure criteria.
