Hi. I know everyone already knows this but I was answering a Saunders Q&A 5th Ed question regarding PPE and I'm getting a bit confused.
According to the CDC (http://www.cdc.gov/HAI/pdfs/ppe/ppeposter148.pdf
), you're supposed to remove:
1. gloves first
This is the question from the book (Saunders Q&A 5E):
A nurse has cared for a client on isolation that required the use of gloves, a mask, goggles, and a gown. Number in order of priority how the nurse removes the protective items on leaving the client's room. (Number 1 is the first action and number 6 is the last action)
__ removes goggles
__ removes the mask
__ removes the gloves
__ allows the gown to fall from the shoulders
__ unties the neck strings and the back strings of the gown
__ holds the gown inside at the shoulder seams, folds it inside out, and discards it in the appropriate trash receptacle or laundry bag
The correct answer in the book is: 6,2,1,4,3,5.
I'm getting confused what I should follow. Can anyone please help me? Or am I missing something?
