When you’re working in sterile processing, PPE gowns are more than a fashion statement. Are you dressed to the nines? Is your protective equipment in a class of their own? And most importantly, do your gowns match your shoe covers?
Season 20 of the Beyond Clean podcast, “Armed & (Compliantly) Dangerous,” is all about personal protective equipment (PPE) and in this episode we discuss how the fit and function of decontamination gowns can be a significant factor in keeping you safe. Keicha Brock is the CEO of Eyes to See Management and Consulting and brings her by-the-book and hands on expertise to this conversation.
Keicha gives us a run down on the finer points of gowns, and helps us understand their class, level, and critical zones of protection. Whether you are in SPD leadership, or working as a frontline technician, knowing more about the barrier between you and bacteria will help make sure you are dressed for the occasion.
