Wash the hands after touching the client.-to maintain enteric precautions, the nurse must wash the hands after touching the client or potentially contaminated articles and before caring for another client. a private room is warranted only if the client has poor hygiene for instance, if the client is unlikely to wash the hands after touching infective material or is likely to share contaminated articles with other clients. for enteric precautions, the nurse need not wear a mask and must wear a gown only if soiling from fecal matter is likely.
