Title

Transmission Interrupted: Back to Basics: PPE and Monkeypox

Description

A recent European outbreak of Monkeypox has captured the global healthcare community’s attention. As cases overseas continue to rise, the first cases of Monkeypox in the United States have recently been confirmed. With healthcare organizations across the country preparing to care for patients infected with the Monkeypox virus, now is the right time for facilities to review their Infection Control and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) policies and procedures. 

In this episode of Transmission Interrupted, NETEC hosts Jill Morgan and Trish Tennill as they take us back to the basics of PPE and Monkeypox. What PPE precautions should facilities deploy? What Monkeypox-related concerns should facilities and healthcare workers be taking into consideration to keep themselves safe while caring for patients? Join us as Jill and Trish share best practices, tips, and tricks to help healthcare workers get back to the basics of PPE at their facilities.
