General Objective:
By learning and practicing proper coughing etiquette the patients will understand the
important components to protecting yourself from illness and preventing others from
becoming ill.
Specific Objectives:
1. The patients will be able to participate in the activity.
2. The participants will be able to follow the instructions accordingly throughout the activity.
3. The participants will be able to demonstrate coughing etiquette.
Materials Needed:
1. Bond papers
2. Cartolina
3. Visual Aids
Purpose:
Because some individuals cough without having respiratory infections (e.g., persons with chronic
obstructive lung disease), we do not always know who is infectious and who is not. Therefore, respiratory
hygiene and cough etiquette are very important components to protecting yourself from illness and
preventing others from becoming ill. Like hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene is part of the standard
precautions that should be taken to prevent the spread of disease.
The elements of respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette include:
Education of patients, families, visitors, and care providers about how respiratory
infections are transmitted and respiratory illness can be prevented. This includes asking
family members, visitors, and care providers to stay home if they are sick.
Use of sleeves and disposal tissues when coughing and sneezing, and the proper disposal
of tissues. .
Stressing hand hygiene after contact with respiratory secretions.
Target Participants:
1. Patients
2. Significant others
Method/Procedures:
To help stop the spread of germs:
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeves when you cough or sneeze.
Put your used tissue in a waste basket.
If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
Remember to wash your hands after coughing or sneezing:
Wash with soap and water, or
Keeping hands clean through improved hand hygiene is one of the most important steps we can
take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread
by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. If clean, running water is not
accessible, as is common in many parts of the world, use soap and available water. If soap and
water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 70% alcohol to
clean hands.
Date, Time and Time Frame:
May 20, 2016 at 9:00 10:00am
