At Stanford Medicine, we are humbled by the generosity of all who have inquired about donating medical supplies to support our staff and patients during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Stanford Medicine Supply Chain team has worked diligently to procure necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our health care workers who are on the front lines. Our number one priority is their safety and that of our patients.
In an abundance of caution as COVID-19 spreads in our community, and with the increased global shortages of supplies, Stanford Medicine is now gratefully accepting donations of needed supplies.
Donations must be in unopened, original packaging and in accordance with approved hospital standards. At this time, we are not accepting homemade supplies.
Requested donation categories include:
Masks (N95, surgical, and procedure)
Disinfecting wipes such as Clorox or Sani-cloth wipes
Goggles and eye shields
Isolation or surgical gowns
CAPR/PAPR machines and disposables

If you have no choice but to reuse an N95 Read this article! Basically heating them to 158 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes will get you at least another days use out of it and is better than spraying them with alcohol or bleach which several health care providers have told me they are doing.

Please share: The American Heart Association has released its recommendations for Instructor and Provider cards during the COVID19 outbreak. The recommendation is that employers and regulatory bodies extend recognition of an AHA provider card beyond its renewal date, for up to 60 days. The 60 day limitation being subject to extension based on additional information.
I feel that It is very important that this information get to employers and that employers put out a memorandum that recognizes this extension relieving employees of the necessity of attending training in groups during the outbreak.
I would greatly appreciate anyone on my page helping me get this information out to employers. Also if anyone has a memorandum from an employer allowing the 60 day extension please forward it to us here. Thank you.
