The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) regulates everything in a hospital from sterilization to radiation. Federal guidelines provide a plethora of information, leaving many healthcare workers confused and worried they will be fined for inadvertent violations.
Lawyer Thomas H. Wilson has written a two-volume looseleaf manual for those healthcare workers in need of aid with decoding the federal jargon. The books, published by Thompson Publishing Group, walk employees through 12 specific areas of regulations and OSHA standards, and two appendices that list each policy.
Each tabbed section has an overview of OSHA's structure and how it impacts healthcare facilities.
The books are also useful for the OSHA requirements section, where hospital administration is guided on how to keep and submit records to the administration.
