In this video we demonstrate the steps involved when donning Biological PPE for Ebola patient care as used by the Nebraska Biocontainment Patient Care Unit. It may be necessary to adapt these steps to meet your own organizations policies and procedures.

This video focuses on the use of a Suit and PAPR as Personal Protective Equipment.

The donning process is a step-by-step process that ensures good infection control and safety.

All steps should be done systematically and in the correct order.

A donning partner should assure all equipment is properly applied.
