Aprons play an important role in the implementation of Standard Precautions within the healthcare environment. Aprons protect wearers from direct contact with solids or liquids during medical procedures or cleaning tasks. A key part of good infection control is ensuring that disposable aprons are properly stored before use, so they do not gather dust: a potential breeding ground for infection.
Flat-packed disposable aprons are typically lower cost compared to on-the-roll versions, but may not dispense as easily, sometimes leading to waste as multiple aprons are accidentally pulled out.
Premier and Healthgard disposable polythene plastic aprons are available in a range of colours to meet the varying needs of individual clinical areas.
