So let's wrap up this video series.
In a nutshell, PPE is personal protective equipment that's intended to keep healthcare personnel
from being exposed to infectious organisms and from spreading that infection to others.
The most common type of PPE are gowns, masks or respirators, goggles or face shields, and gloves.
Full PPE should also be put on in this order: gowns, masks or respirators, goggles and face shields, and gloves.
PPE should be removed in this order: gloves first, then your goggles and eye shield, gown, and mask or respirator.
Remember if you're in airborne precautions,
you take that respirator off after you've exited the room and closed the door.
If a healthcare personnel's hands become contaminated at any point when they're removing their PPE,
they need to immediately wash their hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Thanks for watching our video today, and keep yourself and your patients safe out there.
