COVID-19 Maker Challenge

PPE Inventory

by Maggie Tolan | 11 months ago | in Nursing Home Challenge

Nursing home staff spend a great deal of time managing PPE inventories and distribution, leaving them less time to care for the residents. For example, every mask is numbered and issued to a specific employee. Employees pick up the mask at the start of their shift and return their mask at the end, where it is placed in a paper bag for three days to decontaminate. After five uses the N95 has to be cleaned and the cycle begins again.
