HOW COVID-19 WILL CHANGE AGED CARE UNIFORMS – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW AND DO NOW
The importance of providing a safe and comfortable environment for our residents and frontline workers in aged care has never been more critical.
Frontline staff are working in an environment where they protect and serve our most vulnerable through one of the most challenging times in history. It is therefore our obligation to provide them with the tools, confidence, and comfort to navigate their role to the best of their ability.
Uniforms are an essential ingredient to this recipe, and it is imperative that aged care providers take the time to review and refresh their current uniform program. For some, it may simply involve the inclusion of essential PPE items such as scrubs, face masks, disposable gowns and gloves, while for others, it may be time to take a holistic approach to uniforms to ensure
their frontline teams are dressed for the part they are playing in history.
