After watching the rapid development of COVID-19 in Asia and Europe, I noticed that many hospitals are struggling to provide healthcare workers the equipment they need to safely do their jobs due to the high demand. Some say that we are weeks from experiencing the same load. I am reading now that some hospitals in Washington state only have a four-day supply of nitrile gloves. I am wondering if Hospitals would like to accept donations of protective equipment such as nitrile gloves, N95 respirators, surgical masks, goggles/face shield…etc.
I think many people have nitrile gloves laying around at home from working on their cars, N95 respirators from the wildfires, surgical masks because they bought them out of panic. Dentist offices may have face masks/other equipment that are better suited to be used to fight the outbreak. The same goes for repair shops and other businesses. I would personally donate my surgical masks and gloves; I can just stay home. The doctors and nurses need this equipment to do their jobs.
Let me know what your thoughts are, and how can I get in touch with hospitals to make this happen?
Thank you all!
