Occupational Health Nursing for Small Industry.
Bureau of Occupational Safety and Health, :11 pages
An occupational health program designed for small industries by the Brookdale Hospital Center and Columbia University is described. The results of a questionnaire survey of area industries of existing health care services are summarized along with the initial experience of part time nurses placed within the companies as part of the health program. General nursing activities related to first aid training, health evaluations, sight screening, preemployment and periodic examinations, health counseling, immunization, and emergency care are described. The author notes that acceptance of this program by area industries has been good. A visiting nurse program provides a link between the larger hospital based program and the industries and community. Additional evaluation of the special health care needs of small industries is recommended.
