Integumentary Disorders Q 53

The nurse manager is planning the clinical assignments for the day. Which staff members can be assigned to care for a client with herpes zoster? Select all that apply
    A. The nurse who never had German Measles.
    B. The nurse who never received the varicella zoster vaccine.
    C. The nurse who never had mumps.
    D. The nurse who never had roseola.
    E. The nurse who never had chicken pox.

Correct Answer: A, C, & D

Herpes zoster (shingles) is caused by a reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus, the causative virus for chickenpox. Individuals who have not been exposed to the varicella-zoster virus or who did not receive the varicella-zoster vaccine are susceptible to chickenpox. Health workers who are unsure of their immune status should have varicella titers done before exposure to a person with herpes zoster.
