Emergency Drug Kits

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Did you know that in addition to an OSHA approved 1st Aid Kit your office should have an Emergency Drug Kit? As stated in this article, “The ADA states that all dentists should have an emergency drug kit, equipment and knowledge to properly use all items.” The drugs required for the kit are based on the level of sedation; minimal, moderate, or deep, this includes local anesthesia. Your OSHA manual must also include a written protocol as well as training for all employees on how to handle such emergencies. Contact Capital City Dental and Compliance for more information.
