Is she nuts? I deal with MRSA and VRE a lot where I work. Gowns and gloves are a must. If it's respiratory, then mask included. What this DON said needs to be documented. Not only is she putting staff at risk but the other pt's as well. Nursing 101, gloves and proper handwashing help to lessen the spread of disease from one pt to another. Humiliate the pt? WHat? How about a lawsuit for contraction of MRSA while in your care? (Not you personally)
ANd I love the part where she stated, "You could stick you finger in the wound and then into your own eye." "OK....You first!" "Show me how it's done!"
Lord have mercy! I can't believe it!
I would have to report this. Sorry, but, it is clearly in violation of OSHA standards.
