Whether a stringent decontamination routine adds much on top of diligent handwashing, mask-wearing, and personal protective equipment (PPE) is unknown. Below is my personal routine
- Keep clean things clean
- Have a 'hot' station at desk for ECGs that need to be signed, pen, phone
- Have a system that's sustainable (mine is above)
- I use a bag and bin system - have a clean bag and dirty bag (bought cheap washable bags and use shopping bags and clean and dirty bins in my car.
- Don't cross-contaminate
- Ways I prevent cross-contamination - the phone is a key example. I place it in a plastic bag on arrival (pictured below), I sanitize hands after touching, place it on the 'hot' part of my work station, wipe down after removing from bag and place in clean bag to go home.
