Orange County suicide cleanup occurs through Orange County Government fraud. Generally, while the DA sits mute, corrupt suicide cleanup companies grow rich thanks to our Orange County Government's suicide cleanup racket. Here's how it works:

  1. Sheriff-Coroner: A suicide victim's family must appear at our Orange County Sheriff-Coroner's Department. An office clerk, investigator, or even a sheriff's deputy directs each family to one or more corrupt suicide cleanup companies, In return, these county employees receive a kickback. Our fire department has a similar arrangement with our County Administration-Guardian Department.
  2. County Administration-Guardian Department: An employee receives directions to act as a "guardian" to a decedent's property. Like our sheriff's department, these employees direct a corrupt suicide cleanup company to clean the home or business soiled by a decedent's decomposition. This is known as decomposition cleanup.

My name is Eddie Evans and I have cleaned over one hundred suicide scenes, but very few in Orange County. Ninety-nine percent of my suicide cleanup jobs come by the way of the Orange County Internet. My suicide cleanup service saves clients a lot of money because I clean alone. I do not pay referral fees to county employees or other companies. Orange County residents would save thousands of dollars by using my death cleanup services. suicide cleanup in Orange County below.

Orange County Suicide Cleanup

I clean after suicides throughout California. I live in Orange County, but I am forced to work all over the state because of our county government corruption. The coroner and administrator's offices refer grieving families to corrupt suicide cleanup companies, which cost our county's grieving families more money. I also clean after homicides, unattended deaths, and other biohazards.

My toll-free telephone number remains open every day, every hour. You will find that my suicide cleanup fees save my clients thousands of dollars. I clean alone and have no employee costs. My wife handles our administration and billing needs.

My Orange County and Los Angeles County competitors must pay workmen's composition, medical insurance, and other employee benefits. Besides, you will not find Orange County suicide cleanup companies without ties to their county employee monopoly over victims' families. Only one exception may exist, and that's a franchise.

I also own orange-county-biohazard-cleanup.com, which exists to help others find my Orange County services. Another one of my suicide cleanup web pages serves all of california. I also own Lakewood massage and offer massage for a very reasonable price. This service offers relaxing, soothing, anxiety reducing comfort.

My biohazard cleanup pages offer information about bloodborne pathogens. These germs cause illness and even death. Here's some more information about disposing of blood:

  1. Dilute with water and add bleach;
  2. Kill germs with chemicals for cleaning and disinfecting.
  3. When possible allow blood soiled material to dry before placing in the sewer system. Moisten again if needed, but use something like bleach and water. Toilets clog when too much paper goes in too fast.
 
I usually use 70% alcohol sprayed on nonporous surfaces to disinfect. Carefully using alcohol helps to lessen the spread of waterborne pathogens, germs. Alcohol ignites easily, so I use it very carefully. In this way I eliminate the potential for
biofilm formation
. Try the Environmental Protection Agency web site. for more disinfectant information.
 

I have no need for high-level disinfectants for suicide cleanup. High-level disinfectants cause germs to mutate, so I use them only where absolutely necessary. For suicide cleanup, I find no need for such powerful disinfectants. Removing blood soiled material, disinfecting, cleaning by scrubbing and rinsing repeatedly, and then disinfecting removes germs during suicide cleanup.

  1. I clean using detergents and disinfectants.
  2. I use protective coatings on wood and concrete floors once cleaning ends.
  3. I use ozone to help reduce odors.
  4. I use the county sewer systems for the majority if not all biohazardous waste, saving clients hundreds of dollars.
 
Small amounts of blood and other body fluids should not affect the functioning of a municipal sewer system.
  • I use the EPA-registered hospital disinfectant/detergents list when needed. These chemicals were designed for general housekeeping purposes in patient-care areas.
  • Cleaning detergents and water work well in nonpatient-care areas.
  • I clean and disinfect beyond the death scene to remove possible cross-contamination. Surfaces like light switches, doorknobs, bed rails, and around toilets receive alcohol disinfections.
  • I make up cleaning solutions as needed, and replace with fresh solution often.
  • I rarely use mops, and when I must I change the mop head at when I complete each suicide cleanup.
  • I use paper towels to soak up blood, which I easily disinfect with large volumes of bleach and water.
  • My crime scene cleanup pages offer cleaning information.

 

My Guarantee to Orange County Residents

My Orange County suicide cleanup work has a guarantee that will remove the offending materials, dispose of these materials properly, and thoroughly clean and disinfect the soiled areas. I also remove fabrics, bedding, beds, couches, chairs, and carpet as needed.

I guarantee my suicide cleanup price covers everything needed to clean and disinfect soiled areas.

Orange County Government Corruption

I have well over 100 web pages advertising my suicide cleanup service in Orange County, but I rarely receive telephone calls for suicide cleanup in Orange County. Over the years I have learned about cronyism, corruption, in Orange County's coroner and administrator's offices. This corruption has lead to defrauding Orange County's grieving families by their county government. My honest competitors no longer have their suicide cleanup business, any business for death cleanup, in Orange County.

 

Eddie Evans

I keep my prices down by keeping my expenses down. If suicide cleanup work ever comes my way in Orange County, I will be able to share my low prices with Orange County's tax payers. I remove blood and other infectious materials and disinfect the soiled area and material as I work.

For over nine years I have cleaned alone. I have also cleaned after military trauma. If you like, call any time to talk with Eddie Evans

I would like to clean in Orange County to help people with suicide cleanup needs. But first, we must end corruption in the Orange County Coroner's Department. See my Orange County Consumer Fraud pages for more about this local government corruption. For additional information, Orange County Fraud offers my own words about this type of employee corruption by our coroner's office. Crime Scene Cleanup Magazine has a number of writings on these ideas, too. Within its page you'll find plenty more about Orange County Fraud.

City Comments

Aliso Viejo Anaheim Brea Buena Park. Suicide cleanup must occur most often in Costa Mesa, at least in Orange County. Second to none, Costa Mesa has the most suicides. There's no clear reason why this occurs any more than there are clear reasons why suicide occurs in any city.

Cypress Suicide Cleanup

People would think that I receive plenty of blood cleanup work Cypress, my home city. Here, I receive next to zero blood cleanup work. Ironic isn't it, especially since I've been in business here close to 10 years. I used to travel a lot with my suicide cleanup business. California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Minnesota, New York, Maryland, West Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Missouri, and a few others states, like Oregon and Washington, received my suicide cleanup services. Did I mention Washington D.C.? I did a quadruple homicide cleanup job in this red, white, and blue city. I think I've cleaned in 24 states as a result of my cleaning business. Now, it would have been nice to remain at home all this time, but county crooks would not allow it.

I think I'm nuts a lot of the time as I drive back to Cypress. I even use my GPS, not for direction, but for company. There's nothing on the radio since it's all commercial, corporate radio, except for NPS. Anyway, I'm usually exhausted and spend at least one night in a motel, which I rarely enjoy. Motel are rarely clean.

Like I said, I think I'm "nuts" when I drive back to Cypress. The closer I come to Cypress, the more I want to speed up. The more I want to speed up, the more I think about what I've been up to. "Was it worth it?," I ask myself. Usually, yes, all things being relative. If I can make in two or three or four days of travel what I'd make at Walmart or Home Depot in a month, it's worth it. In this way of figuring, I've succeeded at earning a month's wages. Up against the kind of money I used to make, it's not worth it; there's no crying about it, though.

Besides, I do get to travel and see things I've never seen and would never see, but for an opportunity to help people out of a horrific situation. So I get a truck driver's life-style while I get to help people save money and avoid local government corruption when it comes to biohazard cleanup. I know when I finally reach home I'm exhausted.

Very rarely do I carry biohazard material. I don't believe in it. It's best to destroy however possible on site. The type of jobs I take when on the road give me the freedom to work at my own pace and do what I want. I've cut biohazardous carpet into shreds after beaching it for prolonged periods of time in a barrel. Once thoroughly bleached, re bleached, and rinsed, the remaining effluents go down the toilet. Then I seal the offending carpet areas. With encapsulation in a .3 mil black plastic bag, 3 of them, this once horrific stuff now smells like a paint factor or chemical mill. I hand-carry it to a local landfill.

Landfill people sometimes ask what I've got, and I usually say, "household trash," which is true. I know that I'm carrying solid waste, not infectious or biohazardous waste. If I had any, I would not take it to a landfill. I have mentioned the source of my materials to landfill workers and they never really seem concerned, if interested. Several over the years have opened these bags. "Is that what it is?" they've remarked. Of course I tell the truth.

There's nothing. It has little if any repugnant odor. It's sealed white, and cleaner than any other load of solid waste coming into the landfill, that's for certain.

At times I decide to take matter out as biohazardous material, which goes in a special barrel. Sometimes doing suicide cleanup means recovering matte that's more than just blood and other potentially infectious materials, so to speak. Word do not cover these biological objects' horrific designation, if there were some sort of destination for them. So, as suicide cleanup goes, I get by, somehow, in spite of not working in my own city or my own county.

"God bless America," I say, because it's headed somewhere where we don't want it to go, thanks to people like those in our county governments. And I will continue to march on and beyond Cypress and Orange County as best that I can.

Dana Point Fountain Valley Fullerton. Like so many other areas of Orange County, Fountain Valley arose from a wilderness area; in this case, though, Fountain Valley once hosted many species of birds, amphibians, and carnivores; a wetlands, it became known as Gospel Swamp. Isaac Hickey held exciting, evangelical meetings in this area. We can see how it lent itself to baptisms and a touch of nature to sermons. Fountain Valley's first post office was requested by President McKinley.

Dozens of artesian wells fed emerging farmlands as immigrants created agricultural wonders to feed our growing population. Abundant with water, Fountain Valley . Many people sought to keep this area of Orange County's quiet life-style in perpetuity, and assurances were made by politicians and developers that they, too, shared this interest. Today we see the outcome of their best intentions

Now, because of Orange County fraud in our coroner and administrator's departments, I have never worked at suicide cleanup in Fountain Valley, although once in 2004 I did receive a call to remove a death scene mattress. So Fountain Valley has fed into the corrupt hands of our county government as it holds onto it monopoly over suicide cleanup in Fountain Valley.

At just under 60,000 residents in this residential community, we might expect at least one suicide cleanup telephone call every other year or so, but not so. At least some sort of death cleanup work would seem to occur.

Another city with a potential for suicide cleanup is  Garden Grove. In fact, Garden Grove comes to mind when I think of unattended death cleanup rather than suicide cleanup. This opportunity for a biohazard cleanup arose when a family could not afford professional cleaning help. Well, as they were processing through the Orange County coroner's department, a gentleman employee directed this family's patriarch to a suicide cleanup company. The family patriarch made a telephone call to this crime scene cleanup company, and discovered this cleaning company wanted too much money. Not all families have thousands of dollars, I gather.

This is where I come in. Because this type of death cleanup exceeded the decedent's entire family's ability to clean up after death, they called me. Now, how did they ever find me? On the Internet. It was easy. So I did the death cleanup for a fair and reasonable price. This family was very thankful for my price and my cleaning.

Huntington Beach Suicides

For suicides among white males,  Huntington Beach takes second place to Costa Mesa. I suppose drug use will help explain Hunting Beach's high incidence of suicides. Young men get carried away, drugs corrupt their lives, soon there's not much left of their lives to reclaim. They've estranged their families and peers, prospects for a descent job remain low if none existent because of their drug life-style, and there's little hope for them; at least in their eyes, there's little hope.

I've known Huntington Beach drug addicts in their sixties; their drug abuse began as early as 13 year-old and from that time on, they had zero days of clean and sober living. Some of these men experienced detoxification for their first time in the Orange County jail. Some nearly died during this passage from drug intoxication to clean living. Some found this new life as a sober life an interesting state of affairs. In fact, several were amazed that they remained under the influence for their entire lives.

They had stories dating back to the early 1960's in Huntington Beach. As pre-teens and young teenagers they came under the influence of older teens and even young, adult men. From these role models the learned to interpret and define the role of various drugs entering their lives. When young men during this part of time were learning to play baseball or study seriously as students, these new drug abusers were manipulating their brains with a host of chemicals. We find here clouded minds making life-taking decisions. We find an explanation for young men maturing into adulthood under the influence; growing up without their brains under control, these males enter their adult world without skills, abilities, or knowledge required for marketing their skills. Suicide would seem like an expected outcome for a disproportionate number of these males.

The stories included forgotten days, weeks, and months; they lived on drug dealing, drug cheating, and drug stealing. One such user related that he actually held down a full-time real estate management job. He walked into his office early in the morning and walked in and out during the day. Because of his drug connections he more-or-less played a pharmacist role for others in his company.

He did explain that signing papers took up most of his working time. What he signed and why he signed were, at times, a mystery. His secretary "knew." He learned to ask relevant questions and to mimic others' words and behavior. He got by because of his "cool"demeanor.

For some years he simply sat behind his desk "stoned." Eventually someone began to ask questions about what he was doing, and that's when his place in the organization became apparent, he had no place other then having known someone at one time. The party and joke were over and he lost all he had, but not his addiction. That's when addiction started on the street and he maintained this life-style until arrested for being under the influence and endangering himself and endangering others.

If you read my Garden Grove comments, then you might guess at what I'm going to write about, but actually, a different story plays itself out. This time, I save a family from fraud by our administration department's employees. See my page on Mr. Mull's extraordinary government document related to homicide cleanup and Orange County suicide cleanup.

Here's the story. A lady from out of state called me. She asked me if I did homicide and suicide cleanup. "Yes," I replied, and "for less." When asked how she found me, she reported that an administrator employee referred her to a bunch of suicide cleanup companies. She did not like the looks or sound of any thing this employee was up to. She knew for a fact that government employees have no business sending grieving family members to private suicide cleanup companies, let alone homicide cleanup companies. This glaring conflict of interest raised her caution. As a consequence, she went to the Internet and found me. She like my tone and style, she said.

Anyway, I did both the homicide cleanup and the suicide cleanup. This lady gave me a copy of the government employee's directions to a suicide cleanup company, and I placed it here. I was pleased to help her and I added value by taking solid waste to a landfill as a token of my appreciation for the work and the incriminating document.

Now, I have little to say about Villa Park in terms of suicide cleanup. I did a power washing job there nearly a decade ago, but that's about it. Anyway, Villa Park came along at about 1880. As the smallest community at about 2 1/2 square miles, It moved toward independence from its neighboring city's school district, Orange, in 1891 when it formed its own school district, Mountain View School. Before long its school children thrived in their own school near their own community.

Perhaps the third-largest of its kind, Villa Park boasted a bustling lemon packing plant as well as an Orange packing plant. At the end of World War II, this small community slowly merged from a tidy little rural area into a full-blown residential area. Villa's park sought to maintain its seclusion and privacy, but like all areas of Orange County, it slowly joined the rest of this growing, robust county, and orange county.

Make an appointment for suicide cleanup at any time, or just ask questions.

Call my Villa Park suicide cleanup telephone number any time to learn about corruption in our county government's death administration.

Much of this writing is redundant and likely to change soon. Still, it does highlight serious problems in our county government.

For the entire year of 2009 I cleaned once in Orange County. I cleaned for a client in Garden Grove who claimed that a coroner's employee referred him to another company. My client stated that a coroner's employee referred company "charged too much." So he searched the Internet and found me. The date of this conversation was 28 September 2009, my forty-first wedding anniversary.

I hope that you will call my telephone number at anytime, any day for suicide cleanup information or to make an appointment for suicide cleanup service. I give a written certificate of cleaning along with my invoice. I guarantee my work, which means that I will return to on request. You will find my comments about suicide below.

Genetics and Hatred

Since genetics became prominent as playing a part in human behavior, many social scientists wrote about genetics and social problems. Suicide and a genetic pre-disposition for suicide soon followed.

Social science for this suicide cleanup technician helps to explain the seemingly unexplainable on any suicide cleanup job. Scientific hypotheses now put forward to explain hatred as a result of genetic coding become interesting. Externalized hatred from genetic cues would go toward explaining bigotry and war. Internalized hatred from genetic cues would go toward explaining suicide, it would seem.

Put another way, are some of us born to commit suicide? More than once I've read, and more than once I've seen, suicide occurs within the same families more than once too often. Do our genes explain all or some part of this phenomenon?

Some twenty years ago I would have said, "No way," but today I've become more flexible. It seems that as long as we do not fix a particular behavior to a particular gene or genetic pattern, I will oblige a genetic theory. It's when we try to explain complex human behavior based on genetics that I step out of the conversation. I remain forever a radical environmentalist. "Human behavior is learned," I say.

With that said, what about genes playing a more general part in our behavior. I mean no suicide genes exist any more than suicide cleanup occupation genes exist.

What our genes do suggest involves our propensity for group interaction and group membership. Suicide cleanup shows time and again that suicides occur among people isolated from others. Even though people may live in an apartment building ten stories high does not mean they live as part of a group. It's the group that brings survival to the individual. See my comments below about black females and suicide attempts for more on this idea.

With the black female argument, genetics does not come into play, poverty does, an environmental variable. There my argument suggests group inclusiveness protects us from ourselves.

Throughout human history devotion to one's own proves out as a survival characteristic. Hostility toward other groups becomes a significant element in showing devotion to one's own group. In-group versus out-group keeps life simple and self-identity clear, but outside of small groups living in the wild, such ideas do not make social-psychological sense.

I mean, hating outside groups makes sense in a wilderness populated by small tribes. It's not helpful in downtown New York City.

Personality traits leading to survival may have a genetic basis in the group theory of survival; for the obnoxious person soon loses favor in most groups. Finding a personality trait in our genetic makeup for hatred would not seem likely; for in-group hatreds become liabilities in some settings, like small groups living in the wild. One may hate the group's chief, but to show this genetic predisposition ends the genetic traits movement into the group's future. Self-annihilating violence does not come from our genetic code.

So what does it all mean. It means that we do not have a genetic pre-disposition for suicide. By the way, be sure that you visit this Orange County suicide cleanup stories page.

It means we learn to commit suicide from watching and learning from those around us just as we learn suicide cleanup from others.

Comments about Suicide

Every suicide cleanup has its differences, but many of these, about 73%, share demographic similarities. White males commit suicide for about 73% of the suicides in the United States. Why so many white males choose suicide remains unclear, especially when compared to the numbers for other demographic groups.

My suicide cleanup service matches these numbers, it seems. For white women my suicide cleanup experience matches the government's numbers, about 17%. If I received suicide cleanup calls in orange county, then I would have numbers for Orange County suicide cleanup.

Who Commits Suicide?

If my predicament with our corrupt county government and far-flung travels taught me anything, it's that white males commit suicide most often. I did not need a suicidology text book to figure this one out. My work showed me that an alarming number of white males committed suicide compared to other demographic groups. Of course, white males make up a large percentage of our population, and this remains true today. Sill, I expected some diversity in suicide cleanup numbers.

I also learned that alcohol and drugs play some part in suicide. Suicide cleanup rarely revealed a suicide letter. Rarely did suicide cleanup reveal close attachment of any kind, in most cases. Family pictures were often seen, but nothing indicating family attachment. All-in-all, I would say the greatest missing element in white male suicides, at least from a suicide cleanup practitioner's perspective, is social attachments.

We never truly know why anyone commits suicide. There are the more obvious cases we find in suicide cleanup. These include terminal illness with terrible pain, acute alcoholism, and impending shame of an incalculable degree. Several white male suicide cleanup jobs involved male pedophiles. I knew from messages left strewn about the suicide room. Now, I don't usually look for or read a client's paper work. In fact, this is taboo. But some times families ask me to look for "anything" that might explain a family member's suicide. They also want to find important legal documents. Sometimes suicide cleanup leads to just these sorts of documents, so I do keep my eyes open and moving.

There more to blood cleanup following a suicide, then. There's an opportunity to help families with extra issues.

Older White Males

In Orange County, as elsewhere in our United States, older white males have the greatest risk of committing suicide. Speculation about their greater risk for suicide usually finds loneliness, illness, and loss of social status among the top reasons for their suicide risks. Because white males born in the United States come have greater status, more choices, they have fewer social and cultural constraints to to blame for their power and status decline, Put another way, other demographic groups have fewer options at birth than whites. Of course this is all changing, but the die is cast for older white males.

Speculation about older white males note many risk factors for this demographic group. Overall, the following elements come to play for many older white males in the United States:

  1. Relatively more power,*
  2. More social isolation,
  3. More freedom,
  4. More willingness to aggress
  5. More guilt,
  6. More perceived responsibility for their situation.
  7. Less opportunity to ventilate aggression,
  8. Easy access to guns.
  9. Alcoholism
  10. Divorce

    "White males have more power" in the sense that they enjoy greater freedom to move about. Few white males create security concerns in the way that black males and Hispanic males cause concerns.

    Until most recently in United States history, white males dominated positions of power and authority within social, political, and cultural structures. As a consequence, power and authority vested in this demographic group continues from its own momentum, but slowly loses its prior control and influence.

    "More social isolation" applies to the loss of peers, family members, and co-workers. The structure of housing re-enforces this isolation. We all know about neighbors going decades without acknowledging one another.

    Male hormones, testosterone, play some role in the male's willingness to use violence against themselves. Social and cultural values also place violence against others in high esteem. Monday night football testifies to the power of violence in Unites State's culture. Violent western movies and war movies give hint of the male propensity toward violence.

    With power and authority comes guilt. With divorce and isolation comes guilt. White males without a sense of responsibility, and feelings of guilt for failed goals and outcomes probably have suffer psychotic episodes. We would expect guilt to play a prominent role in the lives of once influential white males.

    Once outside their previous circle of power and influence life becomes a series of failures, frustration, and ignoble experiences.

    Hispanic Females

    Catholicism, large integrated families a generation away from extended families, and close friendships beyond the family serve Hispanic females at some risk of suicide. With these ideological and social supports the Hispanic female suicide creates a rare suicide act.

    For demographic groups, only Philippine women act on suicidal ideas less often than Hispanic women, and for many of the same reasons. The tight and large family structures of both groups create a powerful psychological cushion against distressing ideas, acts, and events.

    As suicide's illogical destination goes, Hispanic females may experience an increase in the number of their suicides as families unravel because of drugs and economic stresses. The growing gang mentality and machismo's influence on the Hispanic female create dissonance in their families as well as a nihilistic attitude toward others and society at large.

    We will find these characteristics of family degeneration in Santa Ana, California. The economic stresses in this part of Orange County grow as population density increases and our economic collapse grows in breadth and depth for the working-class families of Orange County. More writing on suicide and crime scene cleanup in Orange County placed on Orange County crime scene cleanup goes into more detail about these ideas.

Who Gets The Blame

No one can stop a suicide once the victim commits to the act of suicide. As if a tripwire exists and the victim takes that last step in the direction of suicide, the act follows, and not always soon.

After the act, a horrific scene remains and no one wants any part of it. This is when I receive my social reward as well as money to continue what I do, suicide cleanup.

My name, Eddie Evans, ranks high on Google because I market my death cleanup services seriously. Since I became interested in suicide cleanup and other death cleanup work, biohazard cleanup in general, marketing on the Internet grew into my cleaning business.

After cleaning hundreds of after death scenes my cleaning confidence remains high, but my attitude toward biohazard cleaning remains the same, clean with humility. Clean for the living to return and grieve for the dead as best as possible. "Do you best not to add to any complex grieving issues." "Clean your best."

To this end I include ozone decontamination of entire rooms. Soiled floors and walls beyond saving become inventoried as biohazardous waste. I prefer saving floors and walls, but there are times that I cannot.

My solo cleaning efforts allow me to remain on-scene for extended periods of time to ensure completion and odor reduction to an acceptable level.

CPL 02-02-069, (2001, November 27)."Bloodborne Pathogens": follow from the spread of blood borne pathogens. From my perspective, these exposure procedures make good sense, especially in the medical field. In the suicide cleanup field, there's not as much concern for needle stick and other hazards found in the medical field; however, there's plenty of risk for professional suicide cleanup technicians.

For one, there are needle stick hazards. No one knows for certain if a suicide victim's death had something to do with intravenous drug abuse. That is, not until the coroner performs an autopsy. Usually, suicide cleanup follows soon after the suicide victim's body makes it to the coroner's laboratory. Also, suicide victims also come from the diabetes population; so there's no telling if a needle stick from a diabetic's needles lurk somewhere in the range of a suicide cleanup.

Now, I cannot claim to experiencing this hazard often, but it has entered my suicide cleanup activities more than once. Included in my cleaning policy, I ensure that my hands do not reach into areas I cannot see. Twice this policy has saved me from needle stick or a close call to needle stick. There are some areas that come to mind during suicide cleanup that give me the willies. Picking up blood soiled clothing, blanks, sheets, and pillows.

When I first started suicide cleanup I used forceps for picking up fabrics like those mentioned above. Needle stick came foremost to my mind so the forceps were an integral part of my cleaning equipment. Later I switched to long-handled pliers. These were more utilitarian because I could use them to dismantle bed frames and headboards. Besides, I can buy pliers at any home depot or Ace Hardware. Forceps must be ordered from someone on the Internet, and they're not always cheap.

Besides tools, I have clothing, lab coats, and Tyvek suits to wear for protection. Tyvek creates a couple of hardships for suicide cleanup, especially like an older guy like myself. There's little if any suit breathing so I sweat like a pig in a hot desert sun. Then there's freedom of movement. It's harder to move around in a Tyvek. Besides, I think, "Do I really need a tyvek suit when I first decontaminate from a distance before I begin to clean?"

It depends on the outcome, always. Since OSHA mandates that some sort of PPE must be worn during blood cleanup, it's a foregone conclusion that I must wear some sort of protective clothing. At a minimum, protective eye glasses, rubber gloves designed to cover forearms, at least 4 inches above my wrists, and some times a laboratory coat.

Sometimes I work without any PPE. What! -- Yes, when I enter what I call a "lower tier-three" suicide cleanup environment, wearing PPE makes no more sense then walking around in a fitness club wearing PPE. Potential for bloodborne pathogen contact no longer exist. Blood and other OPIM no longer exist. In fact, one wet, moist, and/or dried flaky blood no longer exist, the threat of bloodborne pathogens no longer exists. At least, this is what my reading of OSHA, The Center for Disease Control, and popular writings on bloodborne pathogens tells me.

While HBV and HIV are specifically identified in the standard, the term includes any pathogenic microorganism that is present in human blood or OPIM and can infect and cause disease in persons who are exposed to blood containing the pathogen.

Pathogenic microorganisms can also cause diseases such as hepatitis C, malaria, syphilis, babesiosis, brucellosis, leptospirosis, arboviral infections, relapsing fever, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (caused by HTLV-I), HTLV-I associated myelopathy, diseases associated with HTLV-II, and viral hemorrhagic fever.

NOTE: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is the most common chronic bloodborne infection in the United States. (MMWR: Recommendations for Prevention and Control of Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infection and HCV-Related Chronic Disease, October 16, 1998/Vol.47/No. RR-19.)

  • "Exposure Incident": In this definition, "non-intact skin" includes skin with dermatitis, hangnails, cuts, abrasions, chafing, acne, etc

  • "Engineering controls" means controls that isolate or remove the bloodborne pathogens hazard from the workplace. Examples include safer medical devices, such as sharps with engineered sharp injury protection (SESIPs) and needleless systems. These two terms were further defined in the revision to 1910.1030 mandated by the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act.
