trasmission-based precautions

  1. im having difficulties with this topic, it seems easy but when i took my exam i got confused. btw, i failed.
    i hope somebody could help me with this.
    if its airborne, should i just pick a:mask (only)? what if theres an option that has b:mask, gloves and gown? which one should i choose?
    same with droplets. should i just pick mask (only)? or mask, gloves and gown?

    Infection control I would recommend Saunders 4th edition. For priority try prioritization, delegation & assignment by Linda A. Lachaity, kumagai, and Bartz (you can buy this at Barnes & Nobles). Also, Saunders Cd and Kaplan too.
    Good Luck. You can do this.
