1Jul 23, '12 by grownuprosie, ASNQuote from jt43I know what you mean. At one of my hospitals that I had a clinical rotation, a patient on contact precautions required PPE upon entering the room regardless of contact. It was so silly. If you wanted to ask them if they wanted a medication, you had to gown and glove just to go in and ask because saying it from the door was a HIPAA violation. We had to gown and glove just to drop off a cup of water into the room. It was such a waste of resources!I thought it was kinda rediculous that I could take food/drink out of the galley with my bare hands but had to gown/glove before stepping in the room to put it on the patient's tray.
