ABC’s of Standard Precautions

Our thanks to Laura Flynn R.N., B.N., M.B.A. and Sherry Collis, L.P.N., B.B.A. for the development of this module.


This course provides basic, noncontroversial and trusted information that can help a wide spectrum of people.

The primary objective of the information is to help a person provide effective quality care to a loved one or someone in his or her care.

This course will increase your knowledge of how infections occur and how they can spread. It will also enhance your understanding of how standard precautions and other types of infection control methods can help to prevent infections.

All the information is reliable and was written and vetted by a group of eminent nurse educators who ensured the information complies with best practice guidelines and satisfies the various accreditation and regulatory bodies. Because there is so much unreliable information on the internet, you can be assured the information is HON (Health On the Net) certified.

This course can be an invaluable aid to:

a. A caregiver caring for a relative or friend;
b. A health worker seeking a reference aid;
c. Any person involved in health care wishing to expand his or her knowledge.


Each person’s treatment, advice, medical aids, physical therapy and other approaches to health care are unique and highly dependant upon the diagnosis and overall assessment by the medical team.

We emphasize therefore that the information within this course is not a substitute for the advice and treatment from a health care professional.

This course provides generic information concerning the issues around standard precautions and common sense, well-established care practices for people who are confused.

With all this in mind, the publishers and authors disclaim any responsibility for any adverse effects resulting directly or indirectly from the suggestions contained within this course or from any misunderstanding of the content on the part of the reader.

I look upon the “Herb Interaction” book as a “quickie” for my pharmacy team, no need to get bogged down on the computer.

The book on “foot ulcers” spoke to me, I now understand the importance of foot care.

We forget sometimes the power of the patient for healing through compliance and self care habits. We should provide understandable information.

The Dr’ Guide books were a great door opener and relationship builder with the allergy medical team. Our reps loved them.

We had the highest BRC (business Reply Card) return rate of all time – it built up great customer goodwill and easier repeat calls.
Joe (Sales Manager) Pennsylvania
The distribution of the Dr. Guide books was the most cost effective, most quickly integrated and best ROI program I have had in years – no committee development meetings, no sky high “creative” costs and so appropriate for our product / treatment messages.
