Guidance on Personal Protective Equipment

Put on the single use (disposable) PAPR hood that that fully covers the neck and extends over the shoulders. Be sure that the hood covers the head and all of the hair, neck, and ears, and that it extends past the neck to the shoulders. The Trained Observer will turn on the PAPR and attach the PAPR blower tube to the PAPR hood and make sure that the tube is snapped and fits. If a PAPR unit stops during patient care, you must leave the patient area immediately. The Trained Observer should do a final check that all areas are covered and no hair is protruding from the hood.
