    Thank you so much for this! The first time I took the NCLEX, I was so surprised at how many infection control questions there was (I hadn't checked out allnurses at that time..I probably would have known better if I had).I definitely printed it off and studied it when I decided to retake the boards and I am so glad that i did because I just found out yesterday that I passed!! And there definitely was infection control questions....SPIDERMAN definietly came to my mind

    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!
