So today I was in clinicals doing a new admit on a male with previous history of MRSA. While I was taking his BP, he was holding onto my arm. At this point I didn't know anything. A classmate came to the room and called me outside. Told me that she just found out he was on contact isolation and the nurses forgot to tell us. Of course I had gloves on but my arm was bare. I wasn't sneezed on or anything like that but it still freaked me out. She said that she was just told about it and that the nurses forgot to mention it to us. I immediately washed my self from elbows to finger tips and was so worried. I just bothers me that they "forgot" to tell us. I went and got all the isolation stuff, gowns, disposable stethescope, etc. and put everything in the room and put the sign on the door, wiped down all my equipment used. I then came home and bleached my whites in hot water. I know it probably isn't a big deal, just scared me is all.
