The thing about most infections is that they can spread fast, and scientists have come up with ways to find out how an infection is spread and thus help people to minimize or eliminate chances of infection.

    Which is NOT a "Transmission Based Precaution" ?

    • A.

      Airborne

    • B.

      Contact

      Isolation

    • D.

      Droplet

    Correct Answer
    C. Isolation
    Explanation
    Isolation is not a "Transmission Based Precaution" because it is a general precautionary measure taken to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Transmission-based precautions, on the other hand, are specific measures implemented based on the mode of transmission of a particular disease. Airborne, contact, and droplet precautions are all examples of transmission-based precautions that are used to prevent the spread of diseases through different modes of transmission.

    Explanation
    Washing hands is a crucial practice to maintain hygiene and prevent the spread of germs. Before and after using gloves, it is important to wash hands to remove any potential contaminants that may have come into contact with the gloves. Similarly, before and after patient care, handwashing is necessary to minimize the risk of transmitting infections. Lastly, washing hands before patient care ensures that the hands are clean and free from any potential germs that could be transferred to the patient. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the Above."

This can occur through activities such as touching, kissing, or sexual contact. Direct contact precautions are necessary to prevent the spread of infectious diseases that can be transmitted through close contact with an infected person's body fluids or skin.

This is because a spill kit contains all the necessary tools and materials to safely and effectively clean up hazardous spills, including infectious waste. Using a spill kit ensures that the spill is properly contained, minimizing the risk of further contamination and protecting the health and safety of individuals in the area.

    Can dirty and clean linen be stored together?

    • A.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    Dirty and clean linen should not be stored together to maintain hygiene and prevent cross-contamination. Storing them separately ensures that clean linen remains free from any potential contaminants or pathogens that may be present in dirty linen. This helps in maintaining a safe and healthy environment, especially in healthcare settings where proper infection control practices are crucial.

  • 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 doing so. This duration allows enough time for the soap to create a lather and for you to thoroughly clean all areas of your hands, including between the fingers, under the nails, and the back of the hands. Washing for less than 15 seconds may not be sufficient to remove all germs, while washing for more than 30 seconds may not provide any additional benefits in terms of cleanliness.

It is characterized by symptoms such as fever, spitting up blood, loss of appetite, and shortness of breath. Weight gain is not typically associated with TB as it is more common to experience weight loss or failure to thrive due to the infection.

This is likely because the break room is a central area where staff can easily access and review important information regarding 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 awareness and adherence to infection control measures.
