Altoona Medical Clinic Cited for Health Violations
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited an Altoona health clinic for eight serious violations involving infections that can be transmitted by blood.
OSHA says in a news release Thursday that the Keystone Pain Institute allegedly failed to conduct a written hazard assessment or provide workers with the Hepatitis B vaccination and training, as well as other violations. The allegations were prompted by a complaint and resulted in $46,800 in proposed penalties.
OSHA says a serious citation is issued when there is substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result, and the employer knew, or should have known, of the hazard.
Keystone Pain Institute has 15 days to comply with or contest the alleged violations. Officials at the clinic have not commented on the matter.
