PPE GUIDANCE FROM THE CHLA DIRECTOR OF INFECTION PREVENTION

These recommendations are only intended to be for guidance only based on CHLA policies and taking into account the shortage of PPE. Every institution and medical group has developed their own policies. The CDC may have recommendations that differ from these policies.

PPE/isolation explanation

CDC explains the difference between a regular face mask and an N95 respirator

 

N95 fit testing

 

Mask Use / Re-Use:

Blue face/procedure masks can be worn during entire shift without discarding

Use Single Use Fit Tested N95 or PAPR for aerosolizing procedures on any COVID PUI or patient​

Use regular mask and face shield for strep tests and patients that are coughing. Nebulizer treatments could be aerosolized so they might need an N95 for those; CHLA is encouraging our providers to use MDIs instead of nebs if possible to avoid this concern.

Minimizing Risk of Contamination

To minimize risk of contamination from extended use or re-use of procedural masks or N95 respirators, the following principles should be considered:

  • Discard and obtain a new procedure mask ONLY WHEN soiled

  • When possible, minimize frequency or removing and reapplying respirators/procedure mask

  • Do not touch the inside or outside of the respirator/procedure mask; touch only as needed to adjust fit

  • Perform HAND HYGIENE before and after touching the respirator/procedure mask

 

For disinfecting rooms in between patients or if you have a PUI follow #10 of the CDC’s Infection Control recommendations
