A function of the CSSD is to reprocess and sterilize surgical packs/devices so that the packs/devices are safe to use on patients. However, the process of cleaning, decontamination, packing and sterilization will frequently result in the CSSD worker being exposed to potentially harmful organisms. The disposable plastic apron is often used in conjunction with other PPE. This would include gloves, face masks and bonnets/caps. PPE is worn in order to offer a high level of protection to the CSSD worker. Plastic aprons are also used in variety of other areas in the hospitals including theatre, isolation wards, patient wards and ICU.
