OHCA Tips to Preserve PPE

1. Limit the number of staff in contact with residents or entering the resident’s room necessitating the use of gowns and masks.

2. Perform as many care and services as possible at the same time to reduce the frequency of donning/doffing PPE.

3. Prior to entering a precaution/isolation room, ensure all needed items are available/gathered to reduce unnecessary disposal of PPE by multiple entries to room.
