Standards of Practice for Polysomnography

(1) A licensee must comply with the prevailing community standards for professional conduct. The Board recognizes and adopts the BRPT Standards of Conduct as its professional standards model. Documents are available on the BRPT Website at http://www.brpt.org.

(2) At minimum, licensees are subject to directives and policies established by the medical facilities, businesses or agencies by which they are employed or regulated.

(3) A licensee must comply with the following safety and infection control requirements:

(a) All devices or items that come into direct contact with a client must be cleaned or disinfected according to the manufacturer’s instructions or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Standard Precautions;

(b) All items that come in direct contact with the client’s skin that do not require disinfecting must be clean;

(c) All items that come in direct contact with the client’s skin that cannot be cleaned or disinfected must be disposed of in a covered waste receptacle immediately after use;

(d) All disinfecting solutions and agents must be kept at adequate strengths to maintain effectiveness, be free of foreign material and be available for immediate use at all times unless equipment is prepackaged, pre-sterilized and within the expiration date listed on the label of the disinfecting solution;

(e) All high-level and low-level disinfecting agents must be EPA registered. High-level disinfectant means a chemical agent which has demonstrated tuberculocidal activity. Low-level disinfectant means a chemical agent which has demonstrated bactericidal, germicidal, fungicidal and limited virucidal activity;

(f) Before use instruments must be stored in clean containers that can be closed between use to maintain effective cleanliness until removed from the container.

(g) Masks must be disinfected before each use on a client by removing foreign and completely saturating the mask with a high level disinfectant solution, spray or foam used to manufacturer’s instructions.

(4) A licensee must observe and follow the Standard Precautions adopted by the CDC as defined in OAR 437 division 2, subdivision Z, and the CDC Standard Precautions for public service workers regarding personal protection equipment and disposal of blood or bodily fluid contaminated articles, tools and equipment when providing services to patients.
