Evaluating the Use of Respiratory Protection for H1N1 Among Healthcare Workers

This flu season, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH)
OccupationalHealth Branch is collaborating with the US-American National
Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) on a survey of respiratory
protection policies, procedures, and work practices in California acute care
hospitals. The CDPH is also administering a Web-based survey about respiratory
protection knowledge and practices to healthcare workers throughout California.
This project will assess best practices and gaps in implementing U.S. Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance and the recent California
Aerosol Transmissible Diseases standard.
