How many of your get PTs sent up or transferred without the proper precautions or even precautions at all??
If your answer is more than a few, that’s definitely not good nor safe for you, the staff, other PTs or visitors that are walking around the hospital to see their love ones. I’m pretty sure no one wants to leave with something they did not come to the hospital with!! PTs, visitors and staff as well should be protected and it can be done with the proper knowledge of CONTACT PRECAUTIONS…
Here are the PROPER CONTACT PRECAUTIONS rules and regulations for Patients, Visitors and Staff: http://www.ucsfhealth.org/education/hospital_precautions/index.html
