So the first answer would be to check your facility manuals. I would if I could find it, but that is an other issue.
Question: MRSA of the nares in the LTC setting.
Private room, treat with bacroban in the nares, reculture and if neg then they may get out of isolation? What about entering the room...should staff be masked at all times? Do you let your pts leave with a mask on? What about equiptment?
Question: HIV, Hep everything +, seeping leg wounds and frequent picker with the occasional nose bleed, pt in LTC setting
Private room? What do you do for blood spills/ nose bleeds...protective equiptment...gloves and gown if you expect fluids to touch you? What about equiptment...should be kept in the room and prob shouldn't use the roving cell phone
Any links you can point me to, the CDC site is overwhelming! I posted here instead of LTC so you all can give me some input.
