PPE is an acronym that you’ve likely heard a lot of particularly in terms of items used for and by medical professionals, first responders, and many others. It stands for personal protective equipment, and it’s one crucial way to both stop the spread of germs and bacteria.
What exactly is considered PPE? PPE works as a barrier between an individual’s skin, mouth, nose, or eyes and viral and bacterial infections. In order to be used in a medical setting, most PPE—medical gloves, gowns, and N95 respirators—is regulated by the government agency and must meet their regulations. When used properly and with other infection control practices such as hand-washing, using alcohol-based hand sanitizers, and covering coughs and sneezes, PPE minimizes the spread of infection from one person to another.
