Critical aspects of the safe use of personal protective equipment

The ongoing Ebola epidemic demonstrates that the risk of transmission to healthcare workers (HCWs) is not limited to the worst affected West African countries. It also underscores the relevance of staff safety and protection.

This ECDC tutorial presents the fundamental concepts of personal protective equipment (PPE) and barrier nursing to support preparedness in hospitals across Europe. It provides practical information on the proper use of PPE at the point of care, including technical requirements and procurement aspects.

Furthermore, it aims to strengthen preparedness and capacities for the safe use of PPE in hospitals in Europe and other countries with equivalent standards in health care.
