The correct answers to the questions are Goggles, gloves, and shoe cover.
Disseminated herpes zoster (shingles) is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), which the same virus that causes chickenpox. This viral infection is highly infectious. VZV is airborne, and it can be transmitted by direct contact with an infected person.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) that will be needed to access a client with disseminated herpes zoster should include gown, gloves, an N95 respirator. This equipment will prevent inhalation or direct contact with the virus.

Surgical face mask, shoe covers, and googles will not do much in preventing transmission of the infection. A surgical face mask cannot filter tiny particles; googles and shoe covers are not needed to prevent exposure to the virus.

When preparing to assess a patient who has been diagnosed with disseminated herpes zoster, you will need to make sure that you put on a gown, gloves and an N95 respirator. So, the correct choices are Goggle, gloves, and shoe cover. Herpes zoster is also commonly called shingles which is a pretty common condition similar to the chickenpox and is a very infectious condition.

In fact, the same virus which can cause chicken pox in children is also responsible for causing shingles which usually occurs in older patients or people with lowered immune systems. It can be spread through touch and is an airborne virus.

N95 respirator.

Because herpes zoster is spread through airborne means and by direct contact with the lesions. you should wear an N95 respirator or high-efficiency particulate air filter respirator. a gown. and gloves.Options A and D: Goggles and shoe covers are not needed for airborne or contact precautions.Option F: Surgical face mask filters only large particles and will not provide protection from herpes zoster.
