COVID Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Our Process is seamless and transparent
Personal protective equipment is special equipment you wear to create a barrier between you and germs. This barrier reduces the chance of touching, being exposed to, and spreading germs.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) helps prevent the spread of germs in the hospital. This can protect people and health care workers from infections. All essential workers and front line staff including hospital staff, patients, and visitors should use PPE when there will be contact risk.
Types of PPE
Wearing gloves protects your hands from germs and helps reduce the spread of germs.
Masks cover your mouth and nose.
Some masks have a see-through plastic part that covers your eyes.
A surgical mask helps stop germs in your nose and mouth from spreading. It can also keep you from breathing in some germs.
A special respiratory mask (respirator) forms a tight seal around your nose and mouth (N95, KN95, FFP2 etc). It may be needed so that you do not breathe in small germs like tuberculosis bacteria or measles or chickenpox viruses.
Eye protection includes face shields and goggles. These protect the mucous membranes in your eyes from blood and other bodily fluids. If these fluids make contact with the eyes, germs in the fluid can enter the body through the mucous membranes.
Clothing includes gowns, aprons, head covering, and shoe covers.
These are often used during surgery to protect you and the patient.
They are also used during surgery to protect you when you work with bodily fluids.
Visitors wear gowns if they are visiting a person who is in isolation due to an illness that can be easily spread.
You may need special PPE when handling some cancer drugs. This equipment is called cytotoxic PPE.
You may need to wear a gown with long sleeves and elastic cuffs. This gown should keep liquids from touching your skin.
You may also need to wear shoe covers, goggles, and special gloves.
Disnfectants/Sanitizers/Foggers will be needed to disinfect work areas, guest areas, guest rooms, restaurant, and other public areas.
