thanks for the detailed explanationI wear a surgical mask at all times. If entering a positive or possible covid patient's room I wear a n95, goggles, 2 pair of gloves, and a gown. You remove gown and first set of gloves in ante room. Remove googles and mask , then wash hands and put on a new surgical mask after exiting. You learn quick to bundle and organize your tasks to go the least number of times and least amount of time in the room.
The longest I've had to stay at bedside dressed out at one time is just under 2 hours. That was in the ICU though. It usually is a 5 min visit on regular floor.
Sounds like a lot
Sounds like you have eyes covered by goggles so essentially you have eye protection in a different form than a faceshield
One of my ladies jobs is dentistry related so lot of mouth spraying going on.
and of course they have no idea if anybody is carrying any of our various contagious viruses
Does your face get beat up/marked up from the 95? Some of my gal's co workers faces don't fit right and they get pain and marks from them.
