OSHA AND INFECTION CONTROL QUIZ


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You Can always substitute barrier creams for gloves

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Barrier creams are not a substitute for gloves. While barrier creams can provide some protection against certain substances, they are not as effective as gloves in preventing direct contact with harmful chemicals or pathogens. Gloves provide a physical barrier that covers the entire hand, offering better protection against potential hazards. Therefore, it is not advisable to substitute gloves with barrier creams.

    Hepatitis B is caused by a virus and can be prevented by getting the hepatitid B vaccine

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hepatitis B is indeed caused by a virus, specifically the hepatitis B virus (HBV). This virus can be transmitted through contact with infected blood or other bodily fluids. The hepatitis B vaccine is an effective preventive measure against this viral infection. By receiving the vaccine, individuals can develop immunity to the virus and significantly reduce their risk of contracting hepatitis B. Therefore, the statement "Hepatitis B is caused by a virus and can be prevented by getting the hepatitis B vaccine" is true.

    Alcohol based hand rinse SHOULD NOT be used:

    • A.

      Prior to patient contact

    • B.

      If fingernails are chipped

    • C.

      If the patient has a respiratory infection

    • D.

      If hands are visbly dirty

    Correct Answer
    D. If hands are visbly dirty
    Explanation
    Alcohol-based hand rinse should not be used if hands are visibly dirty because the dirt and grime on the hands can prevent the alcohol from effectively killing germs. In order for the hand rinse to be effective, it needs to come into direct contact with the skin without any barriers. Therefore, if hands are visibly dirty, it is recommended to wash them with soap and water first to remove the dirt, and then use the alcohol-based hand rinse for further disinfection.

    B. False
    Explanation
    Universal Precautions are recommended by the Center for Disease Control. Universal Precautions are a set of guidelines that healthcare workers follow to prevent the spread of infection and disease. These guidelines include practices such as wearing gloves, using protective barriers, and properly disposing of contaminated materials. The Center for Disease Control promotes the use of Universal Precautions to ensure the safety of both healthcare workers and patients. Therefore, the statement that Universal Precautions are not recommended by the Center for Disease Control is false.

These precautions are designed to be applied to all patients, regardless of their diagnosis or presumed infection status. The objective of standard precautions is to minimize the risk of transmission of infectious agents from patient to patient, from patient to staff, from staff to patient, and from staff to staff. By implementing these precautions, healthcare providers can create a safe environment and reduce the spread of infections in healthcare settings.

    Tuberculosis can be spread.

    • A.

      Through the air.

    • B.

      By touching infected Material.

    • C.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    A. Through the air.
    Explanation
    Tuberculosis is an airborne disease that can be spread through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The bacteria that cause tuberculosis can remain suspended in the air for several hours, making it easy for others to inhale the bacteria and become infected. This mode of transmission is the most common way tuberculosis is spread, making the answer "Through the air" the correct choice.

    If you wear gloves when performing your job duties, you do not need to follow handwashing precautions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Wearing gloves does not eliminate the need for handwashing precautions. While gloves provide a barrier between the hands and potentially harmful substances, they can still become contaminated. Handwashing is necessary before putting on gloves to prevent transferring any germs from the hands to the gloves. Additionally, handwashing is required after removing gloves to ensure proper hygiene and prevent the spread of any pathogens that may have been on the gloves. Therefore, it is incorrect to assume that wearing gloves eliminates the need for handwashing precautions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Personal protective equipment (PPE) is designed to protect individuals from exposure to hazardous materials, such as blood or potentially infectious bodily fluids. Wearing PPE in situations where there is a risk of coming into contact with such substances helps to prevent the transmission of diseases and infections. Therefore, it is important to wear PPE when there is a possibility of encountering blood or potentially infectious bodily fluids.
