New Tip Sheet on Exposure to Illicit Drugs

YNHHS has a new tip sheet that includes safety precautions employees can take to protect themselves from exposure to illicit drugs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines illicit drug use as the use and misuse of illegal and controlled drugs such as fentanyl and cocaine. Tips include:

  • Do not touch any substance of concern
  • If you see a suspicious substance, call your hospital’s Public Safety office immediately.
    (For offsite locations without a Public Safety presence, notify local law enforcement’s non-emergency line or call 911 at your discretion.)
  • Use standard precautions

For more information and steps to take if you are exposed to illicit drugs, visit the employee intranet Thrive site. Under My Safety you’ll see the Illicit Drug tip sheet.
