Advice for Donning (putting on) Doffing (removing) your surgical face masks
- Your facemask will be provided to you in order for us to ensure that it meets the correct specification for your safety. This will be provided to you at your appointment. All masks are single use.
- Position the straps on either side of the surgical mask to secure them behind your ears with the more solid side (containing a metal rod) at the top.
- Make sure that the mask is flat against your cheeks and using both hands mould the metal strap over the bridge of your nose so that it fits tightly.
- Pull the lower end of the mask to fully cover your chin, making sure that the mask is fitting well over your face including your nose.
- Do not touch your mask once it has been put on and only remove it when you are advised by the audiologist.
- To remove the mask by touching the elasticated loops only, leaning forwards slightly and making sure not to touch the front of the mask.
- Dispose of the mask in the correct waste bin as advised.
