  • Novel pathogens: donning & doffing PPE for aerosol-generating procedures

    5:01

    COVID-19 moves from person-to-person via droplets (sneezing and coughing) and contact with surfaces that have become contaminated with someone who is infected. As of March 12, 2020, we have moved to droplet and contact precautions for suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19. The best protection for health-care workers is the use of a surgical mask, eye protection, full sleeved gown, and gloves. An N95 respirator, as shown in this video, should only be used when performing an aerosol-generating medical procedure such as an intubation or CPR, for example.
    -
    COVID-19 se déplace de personne à personne par le biais de gouttelettes (éternuements et toux) et par contact avec des surfaces qui ont été contaminées par une personne infectée. Depuis le 12 mars 2020, nous sommes passés aux précautions de contact et de gouttelettes pour les cas suspects et confirmés de COVID-19. La meilleure protection pour les travailleurs de la santé est l'utilisation d'un masque chirurgical, d'une protection oculaire, d'une blouse à manches longues et de gants. Un respirateur N95, tel que montré dans cette vidéo, ne doit être utilisé que lors d'une procédure médicale générant un aérosol, comme une intubation ou une RCP, par exemple.

  • PPE Training Video: Donning and Doffing PPE Nursing Skill

    6:53

    PPE training video: How to don and doff PPE (personal protective equipment) nursing skill tutorial.

    In this video, Nurse Sarah demonstrates one of the possible sequences for donning and doffing PPE. PPE is designed to protect nurses when working around potentially infectious agents.

    This is an important nursing skill that nurses and nursing students will need to learn, especially when working with certain patient populations or high risk areas.

    One sequence used for donning PPE, as demonstrated in this video, is the gown first, then the mask or respirator, the goggles or face shield, and finally, the gloves. You will also perform hand hygiene before and during the donning process, as Nurse Sarah demonstrated.

    When doffing PPE, the sequence demonstrated in this video is gloves first, then gown, then face shield/goggles, and then the mask or respirator. Again, you will perform hand hygiene during the doffing process as well.

    Please note: PPE donning and doffing sequences can and do sometimes change, so it's important to always follow the latest protocols set by your healthcare facility.
