    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    It is important to clean your hands before and after contact with a patient to prevent the spread of germs.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Personel protective equpment (PPE) should be used to prevent blood and body fluid contact with your skin, eyes, nose, mouth, and clothing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Personal protective equipment (PPE) is designed to provide a barrier between the wearer and potentially harmful substances, such as blood and body fluids. By using PPE, such as gloves, goggles, masks, and gowns, individuals can minimize the risk of contact with these substances and protect their skin, eyes, nose, mouth, and clothing. Therefore, it is important to use PPE to prevent blood and body fluid contact.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Place gauze, tape, and bandages in the sharps container.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because gauze, tape, and bandages are not considered sharps, which are objects that can cause puncture wounds or cuts. Sharps include items like needles, syringes, and lancets. Therefore, gauze, tape, and bandages should not be placed in the sharps container.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The following are considered biohazardous waste (red bag):

    • A.

      Blood soaked gauze

    • B.

      Cotton rolls

    • C.

      Gloves

    • D.

      Tissues

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Blood soaked gauze
    Explanation
    Blood soaked gauze is considered biohazardous waste because it is contaminated with blood, which may contain infectious pathogens. These pathogens can pose a risk to human health if not properly handled and disposed of. Therefore, blood soaked gauze should be placed in a red bag, which is designated for biohazardous waste, to ensure proper containment and disposal.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Activate all sharps safety features or mechanisms prior to disposal in designated containers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The correct answer is true because it is important to activate all sharps safety features or mechanisms before disposing them in designated containers. This is crucial to prevent any accidental injuries or infections that can occur if sharps are not properly disposed of. By activating the safety features, such as retracting the needle or covering it with a protective cap, the risk of needlestick injuries can be minimized. Additionally, disposing sharps in designated containers ensures that they are properly handled and disposed of in accordance with safety regulations.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Hepatitis B vaccine is the single most effective measure to prevent Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the Hepatitis B vaccine has been proven to be highly effective in preventing Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) infection. Vaccination provides long-term protection against HBV by stimulating the immune system to produce antibodies that can fight off the virus. This vaccine is recommended for all infants, as well as for adolescents and adults who are at high risk of HBV infection. It is considered the most effective measure in preventing the transmission of HBV and reducing the incidence of Hepatitis B cases worldwide.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Bloodborne pathogens are viruses that can cause infection after exposure to blood and/or bodily fluids.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bloodborne pathogens are viruses that can be transmitted through contact with infected blood or bodily fluids. These pathogens include viruses such as HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C. Exposure to these pathogens can occur through needlestick injuries, cuts, or contact with mucous membranes. It is important to take precautionary measures to prevent the transmission of bloodborne pathogens, such as using personal protective equipment and following proper infection control protocols. Therefore, the statement "Bloodborne pathogens are viruses that can cause infection after exposure to blood and/or bodily fluids" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The risk of bloodborne pathogen infection following an occupational exposure is greatest for:

    • A.

      Tuberculosis

    • B.

      Hepatitis C

    • C.

      HIV

    • D.

      Hepatitis B

    Correct Answer
    D. Hepatitis B
    Explanation
    Hepatitis B is the correct answer because it is highly contagious and can be transmitted through contact with infected blood or bodily fluids. Healthcare workers are at a higher risk of exposure to Hepatitis B due to their frequent contact with blood and other body fluids. Hepatitis B can cause chronic liver disease and can lead to severe complications if left untreated. It is important for healthcare workers to take necessary precautions to prevent the transmission of Hepatitis B in the workplace.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Following an occupational exposure to blood and/or body fluids, healthcare workers should:

    • A.

      Report to the Emergency Department

    • B.

      Call their own physician

    • C.

      Inform their supervisor and Med Group Infection Control Officer

    Correct Answer
    C. Inform their supervisor and Med Group Infection Control Officer
    Explanation
    After an occupational exposure to blood and/or body fluids, healthcare workers should inform their supervisor and Med Group Infection Control Officer. This is important because it allows for proper documentation and investigation of the incident, as well as implementation of appropriate follow-up measures such as testing, counseling, and potential prophylactic treatment. Reporting to the Emergency Department or calling their own physician may not be necessary unless there are specific medical concerns or symptoms that require immediate attention.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Sharps must be disposed of in a biohazard, non-permeable, red plastic container

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Sharps, such as needles or syringes, must be disposed of in a biohazard, non-permeable, red plastic container. This is because sharps can pose a risk of injury and can also carry infectious materials. The use of a biohazard container helps to ensure that these potentially hazardous items are properly contained and do not pose a risk to others. The red color of the container is used to easily identify it as a biohazard container and to alert individuals to exercise caution when handling it. Therefore, the statement is true.
