homeless shelter / new nurse

Sep 26, 2007

Any particular advice for nurse to decrease risk of contracting anything? I chose this work - am happy to be doing it - Just want to be safe as well.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Review your "universal precautions against bloodborne pathogens." That's all you need. Well, that plus routine common sense. OK?

Good luck.
