Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Policy and Procedure #7
This policy has been updated to reflect the new Public Health guidance – ‘How to work safely in care homes’, released on the 17th April 2020. Procedures have been amended accordingly with regards to the continuous use of face masks. The impact of this policy remains as critical. PHW Health Protection Teams in regions are producing their own care home packs and these vary from national guidance. Therefore, this policy will need amending as regional guidance varies.
