COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control – Guide for correct sterile surgical gown selection – NSW Health

The Agency for Clinical Innovation and Clinical Excellence Commission have partnered with clinicians to develop a guide to assist health workers to select the most appropriate gown for each surgery or aseptic procedure and minimise the risk of exposure to blood, body and irrigation fluids/substances. This guide is available on the NSW Health website (1). For more information see the SERT COVID-19 page (2).
