HELP!!!!!!!!I'm having some trouble with these two types of precautions.
-Do you wear mask, gown and gloves for both?
Droplet or Airborne?
-Do you only have to wear goggles if there is a splash risk?
-Does anyone know which type of precautions Rubella and Rubeola are? (airborne I think).
-Whats the order in which you take off your PPE? (Gloves, gown, then mask?)
Thank you so much!
I don't have my text books with me right now, so I can't look anything up......
TB is transmitted through airborne droplets. A special mask is worn usually an N95. These patients are in respiratory isolation and should be in a negative airflow room with the door shut.
Rubella needs gown (rash) and mask as it can be transmitted both through contact and airborne droplets. Contact and respiratory isolation (I think).
I always wear goggles if there is a splash risk for anything. But I don't think you necessarily need to wear goggles if you are just in the room giving rountine care.

when removing PPE you remove the gown with the gloves next, wrapped inside the gown and the gown inside out. Finally you remove the eyewear, with a new set of gloves if they are contaminated.
TB is airborne, although when I was in nursing school we were taught it was large droplet. I would refer to the CDC website if you want the most up to date information on infectious disease. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dhqp/gl_is..._airborne.html
