How to Serve as the Trained Observer

This video discusses the roles and responsibilities of Trained Observers. A Trained Observer is a clinician, most likely an infection prevention professional, nurse, or physician, whose sole responsibility is to guide healthcare workers as they don (put on) and doff (take off) personal protective equipment (PPE) for caring for a suspect or confirmed Ebola patient.

 

When acting as a Trained Observer you will not be delivering care directly to patients. Instead you will focus on ensuring the safety of healthcare workers.
