    TEXT VERSION OF SLIDE:

    Title: Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Alone Usually Does Not Adequately Protect the Health Care Worker from Needlesticks
    Type: Text Slide
    Content:

    • PPE, such as gloves provide a barrier, but
    • Most personal protective equipment is easily penetrated by needles

    Speaker Notes:

    Personal protective equipment provides a barrier to protect skin and mucous membranes from contact with blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM), but most personal protective equipment is easily penetrated by needles.
