Data Collection Tools MA Dept of Public Health: BBP Exposure Incident Recording Form

This tool was developed to assist hospitals in collecting data about BBP exposure incidents and to standardize data collection. It is in MSWord and it can be tailored to fit the needs of the facility. MDPH does not require that this form be used to collect information, but many hospitals have found it to be useful. A subset of the data collected on this form for sharps injuries is submitted to MDPH each year using the Annual Summary of Sharps Injuries.

MA Dept of Public Health: Annual Summary of Sharps Injuries
This tool was developed to provide a mechanism for hospitals to collect data on sharps injuries and submit it annually to MDPH in a standardized manner. There are tabs across the bottom of the workbook that provide pick-lists for the different variables in the worksheet. Hospitals must report these variables to MDPH on an annual basis.

Objective A:
Inventory existing exposure control plans in dental healthcare settings
