Diagnostic Imaging (Hgh) - Personal Protective Equipment

We all know how important Personal Protective Equipment is within the hospital setting. But like anything else, it doesn't do us much good if we don't know how to use it properly. The following questions will highlight areas in need of review. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know and I will update the quiz for next time.

    Summer and Julie have gone to get a patient from Acute Med in ER. Anna is getting ready to help them with the contact isolation case.  Is she properly donning her PPE? 
    • A. 

      She looks she's off to a good start. She just needs to get the gown on properly.

    Summer and Julie found Nicole in Acute Med.  Apparently Nicole has now been identified as a isolated patient.  She is contact precautions. Identify what is wrong with this picture.ps.  I don't know what they are all smiling about.  None of them were wearing gloves when Nicole first came in... ;-) 
    • A. 

      Nothing. Everyone has the appropriate PPE on for a contact precaution exam.

    • B. 

      Anna is double gloved.

    • C. 

      Nicole should have a yellow gown on her stretcher to identify her as an isolated patient so all staff are aware.

    Anna is still helping with Nicole's exam. Is there anything wrong with this picture? 
    • A. 

      No, there is not. We asked Anna what she was doing and she said she was the "clean tech".

    • B. 

      Yes, there is. There should never be isolation gowns on our equipment and you should not be touching the monitor with gloves on. It is confusing to those around you and it increases the chance of inadvertently infecting others.

    • C. 

      Yes, there is. Why is it so bright in there??????
