Emergency Infectious Disease On the Wards

Personal Protective Equipment

Many of us will be required to wear PPE in the coming months. While donning PPE is a relatively simple process, it is vital that it is done correctly.

The Clinical Skills Development Centre and Metro North have produced a simple video. It is recommended that you watch this more than once, making sure you are clear on how to put on, and especially, take off PPE.

The national shortage of PPE has meant that many people have been training in groups, with only the presenter actually have the opportunity to practise. And make sure you always have someone watching you and checking that you are not about to contaminate yourself.
