Putting on and Safely Removing PPE

The CDC recommends a hierarchical sequence of steps for putting on PPE and for the safe removal of PPE that will prevent skin, mucosal, clothing, or environmental contamination (Figures 1, 2 and 3).16 Designated containers for used disposable or reusable PPE should be placed in a location convenient to the site of removal to facilitate containment of contaminants. Hand hygiene is always the final step after the removal and disposal of PPE.
