Donning: Confirming Completion of Protocol Steps

Remember to use verbal and explicit closed-loop communication for each step in the process. Ideally, as the Trained Observer, you tell the health care provider what step to perform, they verbalize back the task to ensure they understood, and you as the observer verbalize completion.

Completion also means a thorough check to ensure no part of the PPE is ripped, torn or otherwise vulnerable to contamination.
