BADN Supports Calls For Mandatory Mask Wearing


  Posted by: Dental Design      26th July 2021

The British Association of Dental Nurses (BADN), the UK’s professional association for dental nurses, supports the call by the British Dental Association (BDA) and other healthcare associations for mandatory facemasks, social distancing and regular handwashing by the public to remain in place in all healthcare settings, as well as the use of appropriate respiratory protection for staff in health and care settings and improvements in ventilation wherever possible.

“It is vital that a clear message from Government makes patients understand that safety precautions such as mask wearing, social distancing etc are still necessary – both for their own protection and for that of healthcare professionals” said BADN President Jacqui Elsden. “BADN also supports the Chief Dental Officers in encouraging all dental professionals to become vaccinated.”
