@wandering_er, a doctor out of Chicago, reports that his hospital is being forced to ration, clean and reuse single-use equipment, and worse – to use scarves and bandanas in place of masks. He’s right to call it “unacceptable.”
We are being asked to ration and reuse, wash/wipe personal protective equipment (PPE) that was meant for single use and we still haven’t seen the worst of this pandemic here in the US. Healthcare workers everywhere are expected to treat and see everyone, all the while @cdcgov saying its okay to use scarves and bandanas when we run out of PPE. That’s unacceptable.
