Standard Precautions eLearning Simulation

This simulation is designed to enhance and illustrate standard precautions for healthcare students who have received initial instruction or information on this topic. An introduction is provided that illustrates the impact of failure to follow standard precautions, including the risk of healthcare workers contracting a disease or illness and the associated rising cost of healthcare. This is accomplished through video scenarios that illustrate how various healthcare professionals and other individuals can easily violate standard precautions, thus potentially spreading an infection. Students are asked to respond to each scenario to determine their knowledge of standard precautions, including proper disposal, order of donning and doffing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and general use of PPE required for specific microorganisms.
