Abstract

In clinical practice, we constantly have moral and ethical deliberations to consider, as we strive to provide our patients with an environment that is microbiologically safe (Cochrane 2009). Nurses should endeavour to practice in a safe and competent manner (Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC] 2018). However, you can only be a safe practitioner if you are not only equipped with essential clinical skills, but also have an understanding of, and apply at all times, the theoretical knowledge that underpins those skills.

This article serves as an aide memoire to the correct use of personal protective equipment.
