3. Ensuring proper use
The use of medical equipment such as masks and latex or polyurethane gloves can only be considered entirely effective when the equipment in question is being used in accordance with the way it’s supposed to – and if the equipment in question is of decent quality (and doesn’t contain any flaws, rips or tears that might impact the way it works).
One of the most important things to do as a result is to ensure you are making correct use of anything like masks and latex gloves. In the case of masks, ensure that the mask is properly fastened and covering both the nose and mouth; in the case of gloves, check them for any holes or perforations by blowing air through before putting them on.
Proper use also means switching out gloves and masks periodically: Contaminated gloves can help the spread if you use the same gloves to touch several surfaces in a row.
