Protection Garments, Environmental, Decontamination Re-Dressing
Definition : Protection garment designed to facilitate potentially contaminated clothes changing (i.e., redressing) as an initial step in decontamination of affected persons. These garments typically consist of disposable clothes including a large gown that allows patients to change clothes while maintaining privacy, fabric boots, a valuables bag, and a clothing disposal bag; they may also include towels. Re-dressing personal protection garments are mostly used for field decontamination in non-contaminated areas and patient transport during massive emergency situations; they do not offer any protection for a person or rescuer in potentially contaminated areas.
