In brief: Precautions

Universal precautions are measures taken in heath care facilities to prevent spread of infection from person to person.
Use of barriers like, gowns, masks, gloves and goggles will prevent from coming into contact with bodily fluids such as blood semen, secretions etc. Also hand washing between seeing patients is also important.
