English term or phrase: reverse isolation
Definition from MC Anderson Center:
Reverse isolation: procedure designed to protect a patient from infectious microorganisms that may be carried by staff, other patients or visitors in drops of saliva expelled when speaking, present in the patient's environment, or in systems and materials of the site. Use of gloves, a protective coat, hand washing, shoe covers and sterilization or disinfection of materials introduced in the area is mandatory.

Example sentence(s):
  • Reverse isolation was eliminated as an isolation category by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the mid 1980’s. There are three types of isolation: Transmission-Based (Contact), Airborne, and Droplet. Reverse Isolation was eliminated as it was not found to improve outcomes for neutropenic patients, and isolation is a negative experience for the patient. Nurse Code
  • Re-housing these few inmates resulted in a reverse-isolation situation, so they were less likely to be exposed to someone who was sick or contagious, but had not yet been identified as such. The daily routine for those in reverse-isolation largely will remain the same and there will be no loss of basic privileges, like phone, visitation, commissary and other items. Mohave Daily News
  • "Are CF patients more susceptible to COVID-19? The answer is no, but the issue is if they were to get sick with coronavirus, COVID-19, they’re at higher risk at having more severe disease, they may be at higher risk of death as a result," said Brown. "A sinus infection for her could lead to a 2-week hospital stay and reverse isolation," said Modawell. Kivi TV
