PPE should be used correctly and is only effective when combined with:

  • cleaning your hands regularly and appropriately for at least 20 seconds

  • respiratory hygiene (‘catch it, bin it, kill it’) and avoiding touching your face with your hands

  • following standard infection prevention and control precautions

  • correct technique for putting on and taking off PPE

  • safe disposal of used PPE

Carers wear aprons and gloves for all personal care provisions.


Masks are worn to all calls and changed after each one.
