I have seen staff not washing/sanitizing their hands after providing care to the patient with isolation precautions due to possible C.diff. She wore the gloves in the patient’s room and then took off the gloves aftercare thinking sanitize/wash her hands was not necessary as she was wearing the gloves. In doing so, she could transmit the microorganism to other patients and staff and put the community at risk of exposure.
