Abstract:

Effective use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is essential to protect personnel and patients in health care settings. However, in a survey of 222 health care personnel, PPE training was often suboptimal with no requirement for demonstration of proficiency. Fourteen percent of physicians reported no previous training in use of PPE.
