PPE — Is There a Perfect Recipe? Observations on What Works Best

Dr Priveer Sharma 

As practices were reopening, the process involved an effort to outline the perfect PPE solution. Dr Priveer Sharma joins us to address that debate with a definitive answer—there is no standard solution. Our approaches differ because they follow CDC, OSHA and unique local recommendations, as well as our own personal guidelines. And ultimately it all depends on the availability of PPE supplies. In defining your own plan, Dr Sharma reminds you to consider the issues relative to managing staff and patients, any adjustments that need to be made to your waiting room and operatories, and the equipment and supplies needed to ensure patient care. As recommendations continue to change, be ready to evolve your approach.
