FDA-Approved Masks and Personal Protective Equipment for Caregivers

Mar 24, 2020Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates, News & PR

Catholic Health continues to work with vendors, regional partners and the local, state and federal governments to build an ongoing supply of personal protective equipment to meet the needs of its frontline physicians and caregivers. The health system has had a tremendous unsolicited response from local private companies and further welcomes the community’s assistance to provide its healthcare professionals with masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“’We, along with other healthcare systems, need FDA-approved personal protection equipment and, in particular, N95 and surgical masks. We are not accepting non-FDA approved masks at this time but are very grateful for the community’s outreach to support our clinical staff caring for patients at the bedside or in their homes,” said Marty Boryszak, Senior Vice President of Acute Care Services for Catholic Health. “The need for an extraordinary supply of protective masks to keep our caregivers safe and healthy will continue for the foreseeable future.”
