Personal Protective Equipment for Family Caregivers
This video was created to assist family caregivers who are entering long-term care or palliative care units to provide care to their family- members during the Covid-19 pandemic. Healthcare workers are practicing putting on and taking off personal protective equipment safely so as not to contaminate themselves. This video is an attempt to bring that training to the public.
