Need your help re: isolation precautions

    Hi everyone,

    Could you please take a moment to review the isolation precautions I have listed and let me know if I am on the right track? Different sources have contradicting information and I want to make sure I have these straight. Thank you so much!

    Although it is from 2007, and the influenza needs to be updated (it's blank), the CDC has a document which states which isolation requiement is needed for each disease process. It is a long document, but it is in Appendix A, on page 95 of the document.

    Here's the CDC site for your reference ... hope this helps. The Appendix starts on Page 94.
