NCLEX: Safety and Infection control Part 3

It was pretty awesome to watch my daughter get her nursing pin this past weekend.

Today we have the last post for Safety and Infection control.

Part 1 is here –

NCLEX Topics: Safety and Infection Control

Part 2 is here –

Safety and Infection Control – NCLEX

Today we’ll be covering –

Handling hazardous and infectious materials
Precautions and Surgical Asepsis
Use of restraints

This section is super important, especially the section over precautions. We do a general review when folks we tutor take the test and almost all of them have at least one question on their test related to precaution.
