Hello, in our unit, we provide care mostly with clients who have dementia in our respite care. We implement isolation protocol to our newly admitted clients and PCR screening. There were times where we were challenged to have clients who are non compliant to infection control and would go out, wander the hallway, touch and go through isolation carts, etc.
To address this, we would sanitize area that we’re touched or remove items that has been touched. We also connect with housekeeping to sanitize areas or empty rooms that patient went in to. Lastly, we would discuss the eligibility of the client whether to discontinue stay as it may pose risk to other clients who are in the program.
By doing this course, I hope to learn more and refresh my knowledge about infection control.
