Delivery of face-to-face PPE donning and doffing training to members of healthcare staff was a major challenge throughout the pandemic. Many organisations relied on a blend of taught and online training such as posters and non-interactive videos, but does such training really meet PPE regulations and how can it be improved?
Blue Mirror is an observational artificial intelligence tool that automatically assesses and corrects errors in your team’s PPE application. Blue Mirror keeps patients and healthcare workers safer by enabling affordable and scalable 1:1 PPE training, that meets PPE regulations.
National guidance for standard, contact and airborne precautions, requires correct and consistent use of PPE. Guidance requires that all staff have received training on correct donning and doffing to support this, Blue Mirror delivers correct and consistent training meeting standard PPE regulations.
Blue Mirror AI is helping NHS Trusts across the UK meet specific criteria within the UK 5-year national action plan “Tackling Antimicrobial Resistance 2019-2024”, to minimise transmission of infection, and provide safe and effective care to patients.
Blue Mirror provides an interactive and consistent practical training programme for staff, delivered at a place and time suitable to them across a 24-hour span of care delivery. It is also accessible to staff in hard-to-reach locations for traditional teaching methods, such as community nurses and care home staff – with Blue Mirror geography is not a barrier to PPE regulations.
In line with national guidance and PPE regulations, Blue Mirror delivers a standardised and consistent donning and doffing program. The AI software can also be adapted to different care setting requirement’s such as AGP and non-AGP PPE training.
