A little about myself
A mom of 5. A nurse for 10 years currently working in an acute care setting- Hospital & bedside care.
Why do I need PPE?
They locked up our PPE on Saturday night. I had a patient with a tracheostomy that had MRSA. Droplet precautions. Their care required frequent assessments and extensive time at the bedside. I had to ask the head of security for a mask. Very difficult to provide effective efficient safe care.
What PPE do I need?
Masks, N95 or N99 with respirator and filter, Gowns - new in packaging so the hospital will let me take it inside Goggles that can be cleaned Pocket size hand sanitizer - that was taken off the walls too. Friday a week ago we had masks with shields.
