PONTOTOC, Miss.-Julie Rish McCord, RN, an infection control practitioner at North Mississippi Medical Center, has been recognized by a national organization for helping prevent extra federal regulations.
The Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) honored McCord during the group's Annual Education and International Conference in San Antonio, Texas, for her part in convincing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to withdraw its proposed tuberculosis (TB) rule.
"The number of reported TB cases is at an all time low, and health care-associated transmission is now extremely rare," said the Pontotoc native."Obviously the control strategies already in place are working and we don't need more costly standards put out by OSHA."The proposed rule would have created an extra layer of regulations over worker protections initiated in the 1994 Centers for Disease Control Guidelines.
Aside from her professional ties, the issue was also personal to McCord."My mother contracted TB in the 1950s and died in 1995 from respiratory failure partially linked to the TB," she said."I told (the congressional committee), if I thought for one minute that this rule would prevent one person from getting TB, I wouldn't be here."
McCord began working on the issue when she was named to the group's governmental affairs committee in March 1999.With help from U.S. Rep.
McCord joined the NMMC staff in 1987.She holds bachelor's degrees in microbiology and nursing, and is certified in infection control nursing.
