Trying to find out what is it, not sure where to look.I work per diem (used to be full time, got a new job and only work 1x/month there now) at a rehab facility and when a patient tests positive upon admission for TB, they are left in a regular room with no precautions. Usually the admitting PA will say "they are asymptomatic" and they leave it at that. No chest xray, nothing. My introduction to this was when I was a brand spankin' new nurse in this facility, one of the nurse orientating me freaked out when she discovered a pt had a positive PPD (wasn't told during report) and insisted on getting respirator masks. Management gave her such a hard time!! After that, I always used those "duck bill" masks for + PPD test patients, even though no precautions were in place. Where are the negative pressure rooms and isolation precautions I learned about in nursing school? I am still a relatively new nurse, only been practicing for a year.So is this common/normal procedure and if so/if not, where are places to find the correct procedure. I understand hospital policy but is there anything else?Thank you!
