How is everyone doing? Let's support each other.
I talked to a fellow therapist today and they are putting a surgical mask over their N-95 mask. Trashing the surgical mask and protecting the surface of the N-95. We have to think out of the box these days and As I told my staff we may have to do things because their is no other option. It you have not started,stop the routine changing of disposable equipment. We stop the routine vent bundle for VAPS because their a shortage of oral care kits. I am sure everyone's VAE will increase this quarter. Visible soiled, how soiled, malfunctioning yes we change.
We are currently in very short supply of PPE's please use them wisely . They will become scarce
. I was excited yesterday to go into a room of a patient who had a possible TB infection, I got this. Goggles will also become scarce. We are keeping tight control of all PPE'S. If you are not experiencing this you will soon. I have been an RT for almost 30 years and I have never experience this magnitude of infection.
