their own time to enhance skills.
 Every student is responsible for leaving the lab in a neat and orderly condition following practice time.

week. Instructors’ contact information is on the nursing web page.

SAFETY GUIDELINES FOR USING THE NURSING LABS, Rooms MA231/233/235
The student is expected to adhere to the College rules and regulations found in the College catalog/handbook.
GENERAL
1. Sign in and out whenever using the lab.
2. SCCC is a smoke-free environment.
3. Long hair should be tied back. Loose jewelry should not be worn. Shoes should have a closed toe.
4. Concentrate on what you are doing at all times. Work in a well-lit area. Use professional behavior.
Keep voices low.
5. Perform hand hygiene before and after practice session.
6. Students may not use any of the labs unsupervised. A schedule of lab hours, additional practice times,
and lab tutor hours will be posted on the bulletin board in each lab and outside on lab doors.
7. For safety reasons, no children are allowed in the lab.
To maximize safety for all those utilizing the lab services, certain basic safety rules must be observed. The
workplace hazards in the laboratory can be classified as physical, chemical or biological. General rules, as
well as specific rules for physical, chemical and biological safety follow.
PHYSICAL
1. All electrical equipment should be grounded. Use 3-prong plugs only.
2. Frayed plugs or cords should be removed from service, labeled and reported immediately to PA or faculty.
3. Disconnect from electrical power when making minor adjustments (e.g., replacing a light bulb).
4. When practicing injections, IV's and IVPB, be especially careful of the needle and syringes. When using
needles and syringes, your eyes must be on the uncovered needle or IV tubing spike at
all times.
a.
Needles and syringes used for practice in the nursing lab should be discarded in the sharps
container in the lab. Needles and syringes that have been used for practice on mannequins
should not be recapped and reused.
b.
In the College lab while practicing, use one-hand technique to recap a non-contaminated (sterile)
needle.
c.
Before passing a non-contaminated (sterile) needle and syringe to another person, recap the
needle for safety.
Note: A contaminated needle is never recapped. It is disposed of immediately in the sharps container.
NUR101 Lab #1
Safety Guidelines For Using The Nursing Labs – page 2
d.
Used sharps should be placed in the red sharps container on the counter tops, or in the sharps
container on the wall above the bedside.
If an injury occurs, notify faculty and report to school nurse. If a needle stick occurs, wash with
water, cleanse with alcohol and cover with bandaid and report to Student Health Services.
5. All spills should be wiped up immediately.
CHEMICAL
1. The specific chemicals present in the lab are alcohol, betadine and chlorox. Material Safety Data
Sheets (MSDS), for these items are located in the reference book in the prep room. Read and
familiarize yourself with the properties of these chemicals.
2. Care should be taken to avoid splashes with these chemicals. They can burn eyes or open skin area
or stain clothes. Any spilled chemical should be washed immediately. See specific MSDS form to
determine if environmental protection is required in spill cleanup.
3. An oxygen tank is present in the lab, but it is empty.
BIOLOGICAL
Under ordinary circumstances, no biological hazard exists in the practice lab, since no specimens are obtained.
In the hospital setting, however, whenever blood or body fluids are involved, universal precautions must be
observed. For all major spills, hospital protocol must be followed. Personal protective equipment, i.e., gloves,
is available in the lab.
COMPUTER LAB – Room MA229
No food or drinks are permitted. See the lab PA for access to computer lab.
I have read these guidelines and accept the responsibility stated herein.
