What are Enhanced Standard Precautions?

Enhanced Standard Precautions (AFL 19-22) (PDF) is a resident-centered and activity-based approach for preventing MDRO transmission in SNF.  The use of gowns and gloves by healthcare personnel during specific care activities is based on periodic assessments of a resident's risk for being colonized and transmitting MDRO, whether or not the resident is known to be MDRO-colonized or -infected.
