DONATED 3D PRINTED FACE SHIELDS

  • These may not be completely splash proof because of the holes in the front.
  • It's best to use goggles to protect your eyes. Please keep the headbands.
  • You may discard the clear plastic sheets but they can also be cleaned and reused.

LENGTH OF TIME FOR FACE SHIELD USAGE

  • CDC stated, "Eye protection should be discarded if damaged (e.g., face shield can no longer fasten securely to the provider, if visibility is obscured and reprocessing does not restore visibility)."
    • A way to optimize the face shield and minimize staff exposure is to have one or two designated person each shift for PUI.

PAPR HOODS

  • PAPR hoods are reusable SHARED supply, please send to SPS for decontamination.
  • Please do not mars PAPR hoods with your name. We are going to be using them indiscriminately based on your size.
