Standard Precautions and Respiratory Hygiene


This module provides an overview of Standard Precautions, which are recommendations for infection prevention and control that cover all areas of the healthcare delivery system (hospitals, long-term care facilities, ambulatory care settings, acute care settings, home care programs, and hospice programs). Standard Precautions are foundational for preventing transmission of infectious agents. They must be used for all patients at all times.
