HOW TO SAFELY REMOVE PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

1. GOWN AND GLOVES

  1. Gown front and sleeves and the outside of gloves are contaminated!
  2. If your hands get contaminated during gown or glove removal, immediately wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  3. Grasp the gown in the front and pull away from your body so that the ties break, touching outside of gown only with gloved hands
  4. While removing the gown, fold or roll the gown inside-out into a bundle
  5. As you are removing the gown, peel off your gloves at the same time, only touching the inside of the gloves and gown with your bare hands. Place the gown and gloves into an infectious waste container

2. GOGGLES OR FACE SHIELD

  1. Outside of goggles or face shields are contaminated!
  2. If your hands get contaminated during goggle or face shield removal, immediately wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  3. Remove goggles or face shield from the back by lifting headband and without touching the front of the goggles or face shield.
  4. If the item is reusable, place in the designated receptacle for reprocessing. Otherwise, discard in an infectious waste container.

3. MASK OR RESPIRATOR

  1. Front of mask/respirator is contaminated — DO NOT TOUCH!
  2. If your hands get contaminated during mask/respirator removal, immediately wash your hands or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  3. Grasp bottom ties or elastics of the mask/respirator, then the ones at the top, and remove without touching the front
  4. Discard in an infectious waste container

4. WASH HANDS OR USE AN ALCOHOL-BASED HAND SANITIZER IMMEDIATELY AFTER REMOVING ALL PPE.
