In this video we demonstrate the steps involved when doffing Biological PPE for Ebola patient care as used by the Nebraska Biocontainment Patient Care Unit.

A doffing partner should verbally cue and support the doffing process.

The doffing partner wears the same level of PPE as the doffer.

You can download a printable version of the High Level Doffing steps from the Printed Materials section of the HEROES website.
