Now more than ever our hospital needs support from the communities we serve. The COVID-19 pandemic is putting significant strain on vital hospital resources including much-needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Without these items, we cannot provide the care our patients need. As we continue to respond to the critical demand of COVID-19, we are calling on our communities to help us by donating any unused, unopened and unexpired PPE to our hospital.
Items needed included:
- Protective gloves (all sizes) nitrile or vinyl
- Ear-loop masks ASTMF2100-11, L2 rating or greater
- N95 masks NIOSH or CE
- Gowns AAMI, L2 rating or greater
- Vented goggles CSA Z94.3-2015 or ANSI287.1-2015
Please note we cannot accept other related supplies, including hand-sewn masks.
