Patient Decontamination Training
Patient Decontamination training is a very unique program Med-Tex Services offers to hospitals and medical facilities; this course includes in-class training that will focus on understanding the necessary components to operate a successful patient decontamination situation. An overview of PPE (personal protective equipment) required to safeguard hospital staff while performing patient decontamination, donning and doffing protective equipment, and proper respiratory protection selection are discussed. Following the in-class instruction, a mock- scenario drill that Med-Tex Service personnel will attend, assess, and provide feedback is conducted. The objective of the training is to examine the capabilities; strengths, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities associated with the hospitals patient decontamination efforts and examine ways to improve patient decontamination.
