Dude, just stop. Seriously. We all know about touching your face. When you are working in a Hot Zone directly treating patients, you can talk. But not utter BS about sticking masks to your face.Give it some serious thought. That mask stays in place and does NOT MOVE. If you have to adjust it, tweak it around or whatever, you stand a good chance you contaminated it and removing it later can be much more difficult.
The #1 source of self contamination is hands to face. Adjusting your mask is an invitation for something to get past it.
Doc at hospital had more post op infections than all other surgeons combined. Observing him in the OR he had a habit of moving his mask about with the back of his hand.
Am THERE. Doing IT.
