I need some advice in regards to the facility I am working at currently, I have only been working there since July 28th and after I was hired and started my first day I was told there was a scabie out break, but as people started talking on the floor it has been that way for months, and the people who have it the worse are free to roam around the facility as they please, I also was later informed that staff will not be treated, if staff gets the scabies we will have to pay for the treatments ourselves through our own doctors. Well I am not formally an LPN yet and I am still learning but I thought that those who are spreading the scabies to others would need to be isolated? I guess I need advice on what to do because I love the residents and dont want to quit but have 3 kids at home and wouldnt want to spread it to them. And I do take the necessary precautions not to get it, I even go as far as wearing a lab coat everyday, gloves, and the yellow surgery jacket. What do you all think about this?
