If the accident involves a serious injury or death, immediately report the accident to Baylor Police at 710-2222.

Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogen

Treatment

If an employee is exposed to a bloodborne pathogen (i.e. needle stick) on the job, the employee must be offered medical treatment within two hours of exposure. During normal working hours, the employee should seek post-exposure care at Concentra.  After normal working hours, employees should be directed to a local Hospital Emergency Room. 

Medications

In some cases, the attending physician may prescribe certain prophylactic medication. At that time, the injured employee should inform the physician that the injury is work-related and request enough doses to last until the next normal business working day. If the physician is unable to provide enough medication to last until the next normal business day, the employee should take the prescription to a local pharmacy, inform the attending pharmacist that the injury was incurred on the job, and present their employee ID card. The pharmacist will either fill the entire prescription or provide enough medication to last until the next business day when the worker’s compensation eligibility of the incident can be confirmed with Baylor University. The prescription should be filled or partially filled without incurring out-of-pocket expenses. Should the employee experience any difficulty in obtaining necessary medication, contact the Baylor University Risk Management office at 710-4586. After regular business hours, the employee should contact their supervisor or Baylor Police at 710-2222, who will then contact Risk Management. One of these contacts can work with the physician and/or pharmacy to obtain the necessary medication by verifying that the injury is work-related.
