    00:00 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:03 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.

    00:14 The most common type of PPE are gowns, masks or respirators, goggles or face shields, and gloves.

    00:21 Full PPE should also be put on in this order: gowns, masks or respirators, goggles and face shields, and gloves.

    00:30 PPE should be removed in this order: gloves first, then your goggles and eye shield, gown, and mask or respirator.

    00:39 Remember if you're in airborne precautions, you take that respirator off after you've exited the room and closed the door.

    00:45 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.

    00:59 Thanks for watching our video today, and keep yourself and your patients safe out there.
