Personal protective equipment

PPE

Personal protective equipment is special equipment you wear to create a barrier between you and germs. This barrier reduces the chance of touching, being exposed to, and spreading germs.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) helps prevent the spread of germs in the hospital. This can protect people and health care workers from infections.

All hospital staff, patients, and visitors should use PPE when there will be contact with blood or other bodily fluids.
