The UCLA policy on Universal Precautions should be understood and followed by all employees. It requires the application of blood and body fluid precautions for all patients regardless of diagnosis. Universal precautions were designed to protect health care workers from blood-borne diseases. In general, these precautions involve use of barrier devices such as gloves for anticipated contact with blood and certain body fluids.
At the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA we promote an environment of responsible safety.
If you have an unexpected or emergency situation arise please use your best judgment in your decision to interact with other students and patients.
