Dr. Kathleen Ann Kelley, Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Nursing Education, provides advice on how to practice good hygiene when going to the grocery store during the coronavirus pandemic.

Caldwell University Nursing Professor Kathleen Ann Kelley, DNP, MSN, RN  is providing vital information on how to practice good hygiene when going to the grocery store during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kelley originally recorded a video for social media and because it was so popular she was asked to share it with the wider community.  “I put together this video after seeing so many people contaminating themselves due to improper use of the mask and gloves while at the food store,” said Kelley, director of undergraduate nursing education.   Kelley, who has a trauma and critical care nursing background, provides information on how to put masks and gloves on and off properly, packing the car, what to do when taking your groceries into your home and cleaning your reusable bags.  Among her tips, she emphasizes putting on hand sanitizer before taking the mask on and off,  making sure the sanitizer gets in between your fingers, how to take the gloves off without touching your skin and much more.
