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.

You can also learn more about this topic through the interactive eLearning program described below.
