    Correct Answer
    D. All of the Above
    Explanation
    It is important to wash your hands before and after using gloves to ensure that any potential contaminants on your hands are removed before putting on the gloves, and to prevent the spread of any contaminants from the gloves to your hands. Washing your hands before and after patient care is crucial to prevent the transmission of germs and maintain good hygiene. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the Above".

    Direct contact precautions are used to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases through direct physical contact between individuals. This can include activities such as touching, kissing, or sexual contact. In these cases, the infectious agent can be directly transferred from one person to another. Therefore, direct contact precautions are necessary to minimize the risk of transmission.

    • D.

      Yard Clippings

    • E.

      Liquids

    Correct Answer
    C. BioHazardous Waste
    Explanation
    Biohazardous waste refers to any waste material that contains potentially harmful microorganisms or toxins that pose a risk to human health or the environment. This type of waste includes items such as used needles, medical waste, or laboratory materials that have come into contact with biological agents. It is important to dispose of biohazardous waste properly to prevent the spread of infections and protect the environment. Therefore, it should not be put in the blue bins designated for recyclable items.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What should you do for "Large" infectious waste spills.

    • A.

      Call housekeeping to dispose of the waste.

    • B.

      Locate a spill kit and clean the spill.

    • C.

      Grab sani-wipes and clean the spill.

    • D.

      Clean with 1:10 Soultion of diluted bleach.

    Correct Answer
    B. Locate a spill kit and clean the spill.
    Explanation
    For "Large" infectious waste spills, the appropriate action is to locate a spill kit and clean the spill. This is because large spills require specialized equipment and materials to ensure safe and proper cleanup. Calling housekeeping may not be sufficient as they may not have the necessary tools or training to handle infectious waste spills. Using sani-wipes or a diluted bleach solution may not be effective in completely cleaning and disinfecting the spill area. Therefore, locating a spill kit, which typically contains absorbent materials, gloves, and disinfectants, is the most suitable course of action.

    Can dirty and clean linen be stored together?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      I don't know

    • D.

      I really, really don't know

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    Dirty and clean linen should not be stored together. This is because dirty linen may contain bacteria, germs, or other contaminants that can easily transfer onto clean linen, posing a risk to hygiene and potentially spreading infections. To maintain proper cleanliness and prevent cross-contamination, it is recommended to store dirty and clean linen separately.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    How long should you wash your hands?

    • A.

      10-15 Seconds

    • B.

      30-40 Seconds

    • C.

      5-10 Seconds

    • D.

      15-30 Seconds

    Correct Answer
    D. 15-30 Seconds
    Explanation
    To effectively wash your hands, it is recommended to spend at least 15-30 seconds. This duration allows enough time to thoroughly clean all areas of your hands, including the palms, back, fingers, and nails. Washing for less than 15 seconds may not effectively remove germs, while washing for more than 30 seconds may cause dryness and irritation. Therefore, the ideal time range of 15-30 seconds ensures proper hand hygiene without being excessive.

    Weight gain is not a symptom of TB because TB is an infectious disease caused by bacteria that primarily affects the lungs. It usually leads to weight loss rather than weight gain. Common symptoms of TB include fever, spitting up blood, loss of appetite, and shortness of breath. Weight gain is not associated with TB and may indicate a different underlying condition.

    • D.

      In the Front Office

    Correct Answer
    B. In the Break Room
    Explanation
    The infection control binder is located in the break room. This is likely because the break room is a central area where healthcare staff can easily access the binder and review important infection control protocols and procedures. Placing the binder in a common area like the break room ensures that it is easily accessible to all staff members, promoting adherence to infection control guidelines and maintaining a safe and clean environment.
