Full Body Protection
The Full Body Protection working group has designed and built Personal Protective Booths, which are phone booth style structures made out of inexpensive plexiglass walls with integrated glove ports. This device can isolate patients and/or caregivers, decreasing risk of virus transmission during screening/testing and nebulizer therapies.
The group is also bringing several versions of patient isolation hoods into the ED, OR, and ICU. The booth and hood devices works as barriers and reduce viral exposure of healthcare providers during screening/testing, nebulizer therapies and high-risk aerosol-generating procedures
The group is also working on developing and implementing a novel sample bag dispensing system, named Grab-A-Lab, to obtain and transport high-risk specimens safely without cross-contamination of surface areas, equipment, staff and patients.
