Guidance on Personal Protective Equipment

After completing the donning process, the integrity of the ensemble is verified by the trained observer. The healthcare provider should be comfortable and able to extend the arms, bend at the waist, and go through a range of motions to ensure there is sufficient range of movement while all areas of the body remain covered. The healthcare provider should have an unobstructed field of vision through the hood. A mirror in the room can be a useful tool for the healthcare provider while donning PPE to do a self-check. When moving in the PAPR equipment, be sure to move slowly.
