Test Your Knowledge
Don and Doff Procedures
I acknowledge that I have viewed, understand and do not have questions regarding Pediatric People's policy for wearing a mask and correct Don and Doff procedures for applying and removing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
Mask and Disinfecting Policies
I acknowledge and agree that in accordance with the Texas Medical Board and Pediatric People’s Policy to wear a mask in the clinic, including at my workstation (unless speaking on the phone or briefly eating and/or drinking fluids) and always in the presence of patients. It is recommended to disinfect my workstation before and after each shift and to disinfect the phone receiver and keypad after each use. This is in order to protect our patients, community and fellow employees in efforts to decrease spread of COVID and infectious disease during active illness and especially in the asymptomatic and presymptomatic transmission periods of illness.
True or False: At Pediatric People, when Doffing (removing) your PPE after a face-to-face visit in a patient room, you will remove your gloves in the room and discard them in the trash can in the room, wash hands with hand sanitizer prior to exiting the patient room. Your gown will be removed outside the room and either placed in the trash can at the nurses station (if disposable) or the isolation gown will be placed directly in the washing machine (if a reusable cloth isolation gown is used).
What is the correct sequence to Don (put on) all pieces of full PPE at one time from beginning to end:
Mask, gown, goggles/face shield, gloves
Gown, mask, gloves, goggles/face shield
Mask, goggles/face shield, gown, gloves
Gown, mask, goggles/face shield, gloves
True or False: When you Doff (remove) your face shield/goggles and N95/face mask, it is imperative to remove these items by the face straps/ear loops and not touch the front of the face shield/goggles and N95/face mask that is dirty and contaminated with germs.
The first step of applying your mask is:
Fit the outside of your mask at the nose.
Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or hand sanitizer.
Avoid touching the front of your mask with your hands.
Inspect your mask for any damage.
Place your mask on your face using the ear loops.
True or False: At Pediatric People, when Doffing (removing) your PPE after a curbside visit, remove your gloves after exposure with the patient at the vehicle, place the gloves in the trash can outside by the entrance of the Pediatric People clinic prior to re-entry into the clinic and hand sanitize. Your gown will be removed and either placed in the trash can at the nurses station (if disposable) or the isolation gown will be placed directly in the washing machine (if a cloth isolation gown is used).
True or False: When you Don your PPE, the sleeves of your gown should be tucked into your gloves.
The last step of Doffing (removing) your N95/face mask is:
Wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer.
Put your N95/face mask in the paper bag labeled with your last name and today’s date.
Close the paper bag by stapling it shut.
Remove the N95/face mask by the ear loops or head straps.
Which listed below is NOT a common mistake when wearing the mask. Remember, not wearing your mask correctly does not protect the people around you as well as increases your risk of cross contamination of your work surface or your face/neck. Thus wearing your mask incorrectly can increase the possibility of YOU getting sick while wearing the mask.
Wearing your mask with both earloops of your mask OR both top/bottom strap of your N95. The mask covers both your nose and your mouth. You are not touching the outside of your mask with your hands without hand sanitizer or washing your hands before and after.
You have facial hair that is not groomed to provide appropriate coverage and seal of your mask.
Wearing your mask dangling from your ear (by the ear loops) while wearing your mask.
Touching the outside of your mask with your hands while wearing your mask.
Wearing your mask that doesn’t cover your nose.
Wearing your mask below your chin and around your neck while wearing your mask. Wearing your mask below your nose while wearing your mask.
