Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Needed!

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Needed!

How can we help healthcare workers—doctors, nurses, and staff—when Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is in short supply? Here’s suggestions:

Items needed: fund donations, N95-respirators and surgical masks, nitrile gloves, face shields, eye guards/goggles, hospital-type gowns, disinfectant wipes. At present, hospitals are not calling for homemade masks.
