Unfortunately FACESHiiELD Masks are not suitable to be used in a hospital setting by members of a healthcare team as it is not a single use item and hence you would not want to dispose of it after contact with an infected patient. The hospital you work at will have an infection control policy which should be used when dealing with infected patients. FACESHiiELD Masks could be used to reduce your risk of respiratory infections when you are not at work, for example if worn when in public settings or around others with respiratory infections. Other measures that can also be helpful include maintaining a good level of hand hygiene, avoiding crowded areas and keeping your distance from others (airborne transmission of respiratory pathogens is reduced significantly over a distance of greater than 6 ft / 2m).
