In light of the Ebola threat, I would like to devote this month’s column to the explanation of the procedure and importance of Personal Protective Equipment, or PPE.
As a registered nurse, I frequently cared for patients who had a specific condition that required isolation. Isolation carts are placed outside of these patients’ rooms, which contained all the equipment necessary to don before caring for such patients.
This equipment, mandated by OSHA, (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), is to be used by anyone entering this room. All visitors are instructed by nurses on what PPE to wear, and to make no contact with the patient.
