Where do you go when your ACTS clinic is far from campus?

If you're in a distant location and you can't make a timely visit to the AMC campus, you must seek treatment through your ACTS clinic.  Each ACTS clinic has a protocol that their staff members are required to follow in the event of a needlestick accident.  Follow the same protocol that your preceptor would follow if she/he had a needlestick injury.  You'll still need to fax the form to Fabian Walker.  In this case, faxing the form will help her make arrangements to pay for any treatment you receive from your ACTS clinic's medical provider.

 

What is never acceptable?

Doing nothing is never acceptable.  If you experience a needlestick injury, or you think you might have, you must stop patient treatment and speak with your preceptor.
