    Physicians can remove Isolation Precautions as long as you have a written order on the chart.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Isolation precautions are typically implemented to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Physicians cannot simply remove isolation precautions based on a written order alone. The decision to remove isolation precautions should be based on clinical judgment, assessment of the patient's condition, and consultation with infection control experts. A written order may be part of the process, but it is not the sole determining factor for removing isolation precautions. Therefore, the correct answer is false.
