Use a UV visible-only compound to assess whether healthcare workers are inadvertently contaminating themselves when taking off protective gear.
The idea is to use a UV visible-only, water-soluble compound, such as CalcoFluor or GloGerm, to assess whether healthcare workers are inadvertently contaminating themselves while putting on or taking off their clothing and performing tasks. Healthcare workers will douse their gloves in water containing this compound, perform required tasks, then take off their hazmat suit. After they have taken off their suit, a UV light will be turned on to evaluate whether they have inadvertently contaminated themselves or surfaces with this compound. This exercise will provide visual feedback on whether they are adhering to protocol and underscore how easy it is to contaminate surfaces.
