File Description: 

Since several changes were made to isolation practices during the pandemic, the Infection Prevention team developed a quick educational guide to assist units. This chart serves as a quick reference for Standard and Transmission-Based Precautions for select organisms, including MRSA, VRE, CRE, C. difficile and multidrug resistant gram-negative organisms. More information can be found in the DUHS Standard and Transmission-Based Precautions Policy. Please contact your Infection Prevention Specialist during business hours (8 am to 6 pm) for isolation-related questions. Uploaded 05.14.21
