*Reminder* Donning and Doffing PPE

Do your employees find it difficult to remember the order in which they should put on and take off PPE?

The CDC recommends the order for donning items is not the same as for doffing PPE used for protection from bloodborne pathogens or in isolation precautions settings.

Use the following mnemonic tip:

Don PPE from the bottom up:

Gown

Mask

Goggles

Gloves (when raised above the head)

 

Doff PPE in alphabetical order:

Gloves

Goggles

Gown

Mask

 

Staff members may respond positively to having a graphic/mnemonic reminder at each PPE dispensing station.
