A new study has identified three types of skin injury caused by use of personal protective equipment (PPE). According to researchers, usage of PPE by medical staff can cause device-related skin pressure injuries, skin damage related to moisture, and skin tear. The first-in-kind study was published online ahead of print in Advances in Wound Care (April 27, 2020).
