Universal Personal Protective Equipment Pro/Con Debate: SHEA Spring 2016 Conference

Today I had the honor and pleasure to debate Dr. Anthony Harris of the University of Maryland on universal personal protective equipment (PPE) use for the control of endemic pathogens.

It was a spirited interaction, one in which I argued against universal PPE use for the control of MRSA and VRE in endemic, acute care settings.

Kudos to Dr. Harris for an excellent presentation. I enjoyed the to and fro.

We were both interviewed for Contagion magazine, to be live on their website in the next couple of weeks.
