  • Standard precautions includes proper hand hygiene, the use of proper PPE such as, a gown, mask, and eye protection (depending on the type of exposure) (CDC, 2019).
  • Contact precautions may be used in the event that a patient has C. diff and requires the donning of both gown and gloves prior to entering the room and before coming into contact with a patient and bodily fluids (CDC, 2019). Preform hand hygiene upon exiting. C. diff especially should warrant the use of soap and water during hand hygiene.
  • A mask is required for going into rooms that are under droplet precautions to protect from infections such as the common cold and flu (CDC, 2019). Perform hand hygiene upon exiting.
