PPE 2 NYC
JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19.
DONATE PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT TO NYC HOSPITALS.
New York City hospitals and emergency rooms are currently in dire need of necessary personal protective equipment "PPE" to assist with caring for the enormous influx of patients. Contributing even a few items is meaningful to front-line workers who are currently rationing and reusing their limited supplies.
PPE protects workers from viral particles on surfaces and other close patient contact. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently recommends contact and droplet precautions, including procedural masks, eye protection and gloves, for those caring for patients suspected of having coronavirus. Viral particles can also become aerosolized during certain medical procedures such intubation or ventilation, which requires a specific kind of mask (N95) able to filter out virus-containing aerosols. Healthcare workers cannot work safely without these protections.
(Unused) supplies that are especially needed at this time:
N95 respirators (medical or industrial)
