Infection Control in Long Term Care: Precautions
OVERVIEW:

Precautions have been developed by OSHA and the CDC to help prevent and control the spread of infectious diseases. It is essential that all healthcare professionals working in long term care be aware of and abide by these precautions. This third course in the five part series on Infection Control in Long Term Care is designed to introduce and discuss these infection control policies.

This program is updated to acknowledge that gowns and gloves should be worn by staff for all interactions that involve contact with the resident's bodily fluids, blood, secretions, or excretions, as well as contact with potentially contaminated areas in the environment. PPE should be donned before entry into the room and discarded before exit.

  • Describe OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard.

  • Explain the elements of the CDC's Transmission-based Precautions.
