New Pathogen Law Webinar recording now available

July 8, 2022

The Washington State Legislature passed an important law change for hospitals this year. HB 1739 (2022) requires hospitals to adopt a policy on the prevention and control of the transmission of pathogens of epidemiological concern by Jan. 1, 2023. The policy adopted by hospitals must contain a facility risk assessment and appropriate evidence-based procedures to prevent the spread of dangerous pathogens. One June 8, WSHA hosted a webinar on this law change that covered the law’s provisions and next steps for compliance. The webinar recording and slide deck are now available alongside WSHA’s bulletin on the law. Click here to access the webinar recording and review WSHA’s bulletin on the new law.
