Our goal is the same as yours: to offer patient care based on best practices and the highest standards while also protecting the health and wellbeing of those who provide that care.
PPE Best Practices
Every healthcare worker who cares for patients, or supports those who provide direct care, most likely uses personal protective equipment (PPE) at some point to protect themselves from transmissible diseases, including COVID-19. Knowing how to properly put on (don) and take off (doff) this PPE is critical.
To help, we offer a series of educational documents created by Precept, one of Aspen Surgical’s acquired brands.
- Face Mask Educational Brochure
- Gown Educational Brochure
- Donning and Doffing Full Coverage OTH Gown Instructions
- Donning Doffing Open Back OTH Gown Instructions
