Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1200-14-03-.01 - PURPOSE AND BACKGROUND

The proper application of infection control principles will minimize any risk of transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) or Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) from health care worker (HCW) to patient, patient to HCW or patient to patient. HIV, HBV or HCV infection alone does not justify or support limiting a HCW's professional duties. Limitations, if any, should be determined on a case-by-case basis after consideration of the factors that influence transmission risk including inability and/or unwillingness to comply with infection control standards and/or functional impairments which interfere with the job performance of the HCW.
