Accidents in the Clinical Setting

  1. Regardless of the Preceptor’s recommendation, every student has the obligation and the responsibility to complete the online Accident, Incident or Occupational Disease Form within 24 hours after the accident:
    1. he/she suffers (i.e. scalpel cut, needle prick, etc.) in the clinical setting or when the incident could have resulted into being injured because of a violation of the occupational health and safety standards;
    2. when the injury results in an absence from the clinical setting.
