User: explain the role of ppe in thedecontamination process





Weegy: Use pictorial and written posted instructions for victims to self decon when able, use locale-appropriate multilingual signage. Double bag contaminated clothing etc. (place hearing aids, valuables in small bag). [ Place bag in container by showers. Victims who are able may assist with their own decontamination. Children and the elderly are at increased risk for hypothermia - provide warm showers, blankets. Privacy must be considered, if possible. The decontamination system should be designed for use in children of all ages, by parentless children, the non-ambulatory child, the child with special needs, and also allow families to stay together. Use step-by-step, child-friendly instructions that explain to the children and parents what they need to do, why they are doing it, and what to expect. Take into consideration that infants when wet are slippery and will need a way to get them through the decontamination process - i.e. plastic buckets, car seats, stretchers... Designate a holding area and provide staff to support and supervise the children. Recommended age-appropriate staffing ratios for untended children: 1 adult to 4 infants 1 adult to 10 preschool children 1 adult to 20 school-age children ]
