Each type of PPE is used for a specific purpose to ensure your health and safety. For some procedure, our staff will wear standard surgical masks, gloves, lab coats and protective eyewear. For other procedures, you may see an N95 mask that filters out smaller particles, a clear face shield that is used as an additional protective barrier, and a disposable gown. We also wear surgical gloves that are changed regularly and carefully disposed of. Personal protective equipment is also used during room cleaning and instrument sterilization.
