Taking off the protection set

Extreme caution and full concentration are required when taking off protective set. The front area has been contaminated. The "clean" inside of the protective gown must not be touched with contaminated gloves!

1. Stand in front of the prepared BioHazard disposal bag.

2. Take off the gloves "inside out": Using two fingers from the right hand, lift the left glove on the back of the hand towards the wrist and pull the glove off. Slide one or two bare fingers from your left hand under the cuff on the back of your right hand. Pull off the right glove so that the inside is turned out. Drop the gloves into the BioHazard disposal bag. The contaminated outside must not be touched!

3.  Hygienic hand disinfection: Carry out a hygienic hand disinfection with the disinfectant in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions for use. To do so, take at least 3 ml of disinfectant in your hands and vigorously rub the disinfectant between your hands, fingers and fingertips for at least 30 seconds. The hands must be moistened with the agent for the entire duration of exposure.

4. Taking off the protective gown: The front and the sleeves of the protective gown are contaminated! Avoid touching these sides in any way. Loosen the tie straps of the protective gown and make sure that the sleeves do not touch your body when you reach for the tie straps. Pull the gown away from your neck and shoulders. Make sure you only touch the inside of the gown. Turn the gown inside out. Fold or roll it into a bundle and put it in the disposal bag.

5. Hygienic hand disinfection: As described under point 3, carry out another hygienic hand disinfection.

6. Taking off the face shield: Grasp the face shield on the side and pull it up off the head. Dispose of in the BioHazard disposal bag. Avoid all contact with the potentially contaminated surfaces.

7. Hygienic hand disinfection: As described under point 3, carry out another hygienic hand disinfection.

8. Taking off the respirator: Slightly tilt your upper body forward and look at the floor. Grasp the elastic bands at the back of the head and pull them over the head from back to front. The respirator falls away by itself. Dispose of the respirator in the BioHazard disposal bag. Avoid any contact with the potentially contaminated surfaces.

9.  Hygienic hand disinfection: As described under point 3, carry out another hygienic hand disinfection.

10. Close the disposal bag: Pick up the BioHazard disposal bag by the edge of the bag and close the opening with one hand. Warning! Take care while closing the bag. The bag and the contents must not be pressed or squeezed together. No dust or aerosols should escape from the bag. Turn the bag around its axis a few times with the other hand so that it is hermetically sealed. Bend the twisted end once and tie the resulting loop with the cable tie.

11. Hygienic hand disinfection: As described under point 3, carry out another hygienic hand disinfection.

Dispose of the BioHazard disposal bag in accordance with state and local regulations.
