When using PPE, it is important to follow a specific order to reduce the potential of contamination. In general, you should work from "dirtiest" to "cleanest" parts of the PPE attire.

Remove outer garments, jewelry, make up, artificial nails, piercings, etc. before putting on any PPE. 2. Start with shoe and hair covers including any facial hair. 3. Put on the a face mask or face shield. 4. Wash your hands with appropriate hand washing technique. 5. Use a compounding specific gown. 6.
