Training Volunteer Checklist

Contamination Protocols

  • I understand the meaning of Parvo ICU being an Isolation. Anything that comes into the ICU is officially and highly contaminated, and nothing leaves with the exception of people, puppies, decontaminated paperwork, decontaminated crates, and properly contained trash/recycling.
  • I understand the Hand Washing Procedure listed in the Wiki.
  • I understand the Scrubbing In and Out Procedures listed in the Wiki.
  • I understand that improper decontamination procedures spreads this incredible hardy virus into other areas and puts the lives of other puppies at risk. This spread is as simple as setting a contaminated foot (while wearing parvo shoes and/or scrubs) into any “clean area” for any purpose. Parvovirus can survive on inorganic and inanimate objects for up to a year!
  • I understand the Medical Treatments and Tests listed on the Wiki as they apply to my position.

Aseptic and Sterile Technique

  • I understand the Aseptic and Sterile Technique Protocol listed in the Wiki.
  • I understand the importance of the Aseptic and Sterile Technique Protocol for maintaining the health and comfort of puppies under my care.

Using Pumps (Medical Team Only)

  • I understand the procedures listed in the IV Pump Troubleshooting guide listed on the Wiki.
  • I understand how to prepare IV pump treatments.
