Bloodborne Pathogens (HIV, HBV and HCV) and other contagious diseases
SUNY Geneseo recognizes that its greatest assets, the students, faculty, staff and administration, are among the populations with low, but still measurable, occurrences of HIV, HBV and HCV.
To eliminate the possibility of spread of these and other disease causing pathogens, the campus has developed an Exposure Control Plan.
Cleanup of vomit is not without risk to the custodians or others involved. A procedure for response to vomit in campus buildings was developed to protect all campus personnel.
In the event of employee exposure the PESH exposure form must be filled out and kept in the employee medical file.
Additional information on these and other diseases is available at Lauderdale Center for Student Health and Counseling or at the CDC website.
Information on Sharps Shelters
What is a Sharps Shelter? A Sharps Shelter or Sharps Container is a container, usually made of hard plastic, used for the disposal of used needles and syringes so needles don't pierce it.
Where can I find these on campus? In general, sharps shelters are located in the restrooms located closest to the main entrance of a building. See below for exact locations. Additionally, portable sharps shelters are also available for student use, obtained from the Lauderdale Health Center. Have questions on other Regulated Medical Wastes? Click here.
