Wear gloves and a gown when removing the patient’s bedpan.

The nurse should wear gloves and a gown when removing the patients bedpan because the type A hepatitis virus occurs in stools. It may also occur in blood, nasotracheal secretions, and urine. Type A hepatitis isnt transmitted through the air by way of droplets. Special precautions arent needed when feeding the patient, but disposable utensils should be used.
