What is this POINT SYSTEM for CREC?

The point system is used to come up with a very objective way of classifying HCWs into High Risk, Medium Risk and Low Risk. A HCW can get a maximum of 3 points for each of the three risk criteria used (Type of Health Facility, Work Setting, and Nature of Work). The total number of points from the three (3) criteria shall be added to get the sum, which shall serve as the HCW overall RISK CLASSIFICATION as follows:                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

3-4 Points - Low Risk
5-7 Points - Medium Risk
8-9  Points - High Risk
