In many places (e.g. in New South Wales, Australia), speech pathologists in private practice must have an infection control policy.
This 6-page policy template covers basic precautions for staff and others when potentially exposed to infection risks, including good hand hygiene practices.
It also includes management guidelines for a variety of infection risks, including non-reusable equipment, soiled clothing, toys and therapy equipment.
It is provided in both Word and PDT formats.
