Measles precautions

  1. I've seen many different answers as I'm doing questions. For measles precautions- is it only airborne or also contact- gown and gloves???

    Thanks.

    My understanding that all mucous membranes, including the eyes are to be protected from fine droplets. I would say you would probably need more that just respiratory and contact isolation precautions. Is there a case of active measles going on somewhere?

    My nclex review book said that it's only respiratory precautions.

    On my notes:

    Measles(Rubeola) = Airborne
    German Measles (Rubella) = Contact

    Hope that helps.

    CORRECTION!


    German Measles(Rubella) = Droplet

    Sorry, my mistake.
