Universal precautions protect us while doing volunteer work, but they also protect patients with compromised immune systems. This webinar, designed specifically for hospice volunteers, will go through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) standards for universal precautions and hand washing. This information is critical in your work as a hospice volunteer, but can also be extremely useful in everyday life.
