To provide absolute clarity on what the revised PPE changes mean for health and social care staff working on the frontline, HPS has produced visual posters specifying what kind of PPE should be worn in which setting or scenario. A poster has been produced for each of the following settings:
1.Healthcare settings: Caring for patients not suspected or known to have COVID-19
2.Community settings: Caring for patients or residents not suspected or known to have COVID-19
3.All health and social care settings: Caring for patients who are confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19
4.High risk acute areas: Caring for patients who are confirmed or suspected to have COVID-19
The posters have been made available on the COVID-19 section of the HPS website at https://www.hps.scot.nhs.uk/a-to-z-of-topics/covid-19/ so that they can be printed and displayed in each of the respective settings. You can also download the posters below.
