This page provides the role descriptions and implementation materials to help standardise PPE support across Monash Health.
The correct use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is a fundamental part of our safe management of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are implementing a range of additional initiatives designed to keep you safe at work.
This includes additional resources and roles to support your correct use of PPE and to ensure the safety of those entering and leaving suspected COVID (SCOVID) and COVID wards.
These roles should not only maintain and improve our safety and PPE compliance but also standardise approaches across all Monash Health sites so that we have a sustainable model throughout the pandemic.
PPE advisors provide ongoing support, direct observational guidance and advice where it is needed to ensure we are all using PPE correctly.
PPE coaches are additional roles to support you with PPE management and precautions. Our PPE coaches will monitor ward practices including PPE, physical distancing, food and beverages and tea rooms.
Concierges are non-clinical roles and ensure traffic on the COVID management wards is minimised and PPE application requirements are maintained.
The following documents and resources will support the PPE advisors, coaches and concierges carry out their roles consistently across sites:
