- Version GX2 - Body Fluid Exposure



The Body Fluid Exposure (BFE) Module in Medgate’s Occupational Health Software Suite provides organizations with a comprehensive and robust tool to track, record, and manage all staff exposures to splashes/sharps/needlesticks.

  • Integrate with the Clinic Visit, Case Management and Incident Management modules for effective communication and seamless data sharing between departments/functions for occupational body fluid exposures
  • Automatically populate the OSHA 300 log as a “privacy case”, the OSHA Sharps log and accompanying OSHA 301 with the BFE details
  • Demonstrate appropriate due diligence by tracking exposure protocols followed for each exposure / conversion
  • Configure your BFE data capture form to company specific workflows and processes based on the type of exposure (sharp/needlestick, splash or aerosol transmissible diseases (ATDs))
  • Record clinical testing and immunizations administered to the source and the exposed employee

  • Capture details on how the body fluid exposure occurred and share this data with the case manager/incident investigator as appropriate; details include date, location, description, and cause of the incident
  • Record the element the body fluid was exposed to from a company-tailored list of potential exposures; volume and severity of the exposure are also captured
  • Assess and note the risk level of the exposure
  • Track information specific to the type of exposure – for example, in the event of a syringe exposure, you might track whether it was safety engineered, whether the safety mechanism was activated, whether it was contaminated, etc.
  • Ensure that the source individual (if known) is tracked on the record
  • Record whether the exposed employee converted (contracted the disease/illness and/or tested positive for the disease i.e. tuberculosis)
  • Document any exposure protocols followed and immunizations administered:
    • Link the appropriate protocol to the exposure record including start and end dates
    • Track immunization and clinical testing for the exposed person (via direct links to the Clinical Testing and Immunization Modules); if immunization tests are selected, automatic workflow will ensure that employees are recalled for subsequent doses
    • Track any testing administered to the source
  • Reference any medications, allergies, and contraindications for the exposed employee
  • Create and track any corrective actions associated with the BFE (see the Findings & Actions Module)
  • Access, create, and/or attach any questionnaires, notes and documents associated with the BFE

  • Report on any data captured in this module using Medgate’s flexible Report Writer tool
  • Analyze exposure counts by department/geographic location, risk level, part of body, or other BFE dimensions using the powerful Metrics tool
