Learn How To Control Infection With This Quiz - Quiz

Microorganisms, bacteria, and viruses being the prime suspects, are a silent killer that can latch themselves onto you by pure luck and inflict you with an illness of any degree of severity. Is there a way to stop it? There is! In the following quiz, we’ll be discussing infection control and how we can actively and effectively prevent these tiny creatures from harming the people we love.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Use airborne precautions to prevent transmission of infectious agents that remain infectious over long distances when suspended in the air.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Airborne precautions are necessary to prevent the transmission of infectious agents that can remain infectious over long distances when suspended in the air. These agents can be transmitted through small respiratory droplets or dust particles and can travel beyond the immediate vicinity of an infected individual. By implementing airborne precautions, such as wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) like masks, gloves, and gowns, healthcare workers can minimize the risk of inhaling or coming into contact with these infectious agents and prevent their spread to others. Therefore, the given statement is true.

    When dealing with patients who have pertussis and rubella you should follow Droplet Precautions

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When dealing with patients who have pertussis and rubella, it is important to follow Droplet Precautions. This is because both pertussis and rubella are highly contagious diseases that can spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. By following Droplet Precautions, healthcare professionals can minimize the risk of transmission to themselves and other patients. This may include wearing a mask, using gloves, and practicing proper hand hygiene. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

    VRE is transmitted through casual contact such as touching, hugging or through the air by coughing or sneezing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    VRE (Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus) is not transmitted through casual contact such as touching or hugging. It is primarily transmitted through direct contact with contaminated surfaces or through healthcare workers who have not properly washed their hands. Airborne transmission through coughing or sneezing is also not a common mode of transmission for VRE. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Dried HBV has been shown to survive on environmental surfaces at room temp for up to 1 week.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Dried HBV has been shown to survive on environmental surfaces at room temperature for up to 1 week. This means that even after the liquid form of the virus has dried, it can still remain viable on surfaces for a significant amount of time. This highlights the importance of proper cleaning and disinfection protocols to prevent the spread of HBV.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    According to studies conducted by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention, alcohol-based decontamination is not as effective as washing with soap and water in reducing multi-drug-resistant pathogens. Therefore, the given statement is false.
