Plastic disposable aprons - may increase risk of patients contracting an infectionRegister Today!
- by icuinuk Nov 8, '10Hi all,
I am trying to update our Infection Control Policy and i'm trying to find out if it's true that disposable plastic aprons worn by nurses may increase the risk of patients contracting an infection. Any thoughts...
Many thanks.Last edit by icuinuk on Nov 8, '10 : Reason: wrong spelling
