Isolation Precautions / illnesses

  1. I have heard about isolation precautions being on the Nclex from several people. I know some basic diseases / illnesses and what types of precautions we should take... But I am wondering if someone has a list or a website that lists diseases / illnesses and the associated precaution. I checked out the CDC website and could not find such a list.

    Thanks so much!!

    Maybe someone who took the NCLEX can elaborate. They probably have question that are like a person with TB should be on droplet precautions and not contact or standard.

    You can do a Google search on contact precautions, etc. Here's on from the Yale New Haven website which is pretty comprehensive. Click on the links on the left for more info. Good luck!
