Everyone's exam is different. I am still having problems remembering all the drugs, but I would at least try to remember the adverse effects.
Here is a site I used to help me memorize. I wouldn't base all your studying on drugs on this, however it is help on certain questions.
also used Saunders fifth addition, I thought those questions were actually harder than what I got on the NCLEX,but then again everyones exam is different for precautions
Infections requiring airborne precautions are those caused by pathogens that
remain suspended in the air for prolonged periods of time. Clients with tuberculosis,
measles (rubeola), and varicella should be cared for using airborne precaution
The client should be placed in a private, negative pressure room.
Healthcare workers should wear a HEPA mask (also referred to as an N-95 or
respirator mask) when caring for these clients.
Infections requiring droplet precautions are those caused by pathogens that are
suspended in droplets that travel 3 feet, but are not suspended in the air for long
periods of time. Clients with influenza, mumps, pertussis, rubella (German
measles), diphtheria, pneumonia, scarlet fever, streptococcal pharyngitis, and
should be cared for using droplet precautions. The client should be
placed in a private room or in a room with a client who has the same illness.
Client beds should be no closer than 3 feet apart. The door to the room may
remain open. Healthcare workers should wear a mask when in direct contact
with the client.
Infections requiring contact precautions are those caused by pathogens spread
by direct contact. Clients with RSV, scabies, colonization with MRSA, and VRE
should be cared for using contact precautions. The client should be placed in a
private room or with a client with the same illness. Healthcare workers should
wear gloves when entering the room and wear gowns to prevent contact with the
client. Hands should be washed with an antimicrobial soap before leaving the
client’s room. Equipment used by the client should remain in the room and
should be disinfected before being used by anyone else. The client should be
transported only for essential procedures; during transport, precautions should
be taken to prevent disease transmission.
