All nurses have had training about Standard Precautions, Universal Precautions and Hand-washing. Unfortunately, many do not always recall the details and might not be protecting themselves and others during clinical care. All OHNS will have up-to-date knowledge about Standard/Universal Precautions and will effectively complete hand-washing at all times according to recommended standards.
Upon completion of this session, the learner will be able to:
- Compare and contrast the differences between Standard and Universal Precautions.
- Efficacy of soap and water vs alcohol-based hand rub preparations.
- Describe and demonstrate the best practice for effective hand-washing.
