    Confused about infection control?

    So I pretty much have down the difference between airborne, droplet, and contact precautions, but I'm getting confused about PPE? So when you enter a room with someone with droplet precautions don't you put on gloves, gown, and mask and if in contact with fluids a face shield? I keep on just seeing mask for doplet and the n95 respirator for airborne? Perhaps i am just starting to over think things since doing so many questions. If someone can please just give me their thoughts I would appreciate it taking the test on the 28th!!

    Hi Chris,

    From what I've studied: when you are going into a patient's room with airborne precautions you wear a gown, mask, respirator, gloves. For droplet: gown, mask, gloves all the time, and for contact: gown, gloves Good luck on your exam!

    And don't forget... according to the CDC (and Kaplan, as I found out on my question trainer, and NCLEX, apparently), SARS is now Airborne in many situations, so now My Stupid Chicken Has TB!

    May God bless the OP for this thread, this was a blessing!!!! Very useful, had a few questions on that and all I could think was my poor chicken hez tb and the spiderman married mrs wee. That certainly made the difference, and that was the only thing I wrote on my board at the test, amazing, thank you 1 million times, this was supper simple to memorize, learn and remember

    Had a question like this in n3500. SARS is considered both contact and airborne. Its a respiratory infx sooo. I just think of it as sneezing, first all the good stuff flies then lands

    (correct me if im wrong)

    GOOD **** BTW! Taking the nclex in 3weeks!

    So according to the mneumonics,

    Airborne: mask
    droplet: mask
    contact: gloves, gown?

    Others say follow the mneumonics. But other people are saying this and that. So what exactly do you wear when going inside the patients room with these precautions?

    CDC both have contact and droplet as same. but according to some, airborne and droplet are gown, gloves, and mask. PLS help passer
