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.
