Healthcare workers not removing protective garments correctly
from American Journal of Infection Control via Advance for NPs & PAs
Fewer than 1 in 6 healthcare workers followed all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations for the removal of personal protective equipment after patient care, according to a brief report published in the American Journal of Infection Control, the official publication of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. Isolation precautions are used to help stop the spread of germs from one person to another and may require use of gowns, gloves, and face protection.
