Summary Strategies to Optimize the Supply of PPE During Shortages   [open pdf - 417KB]

From the Document: "This quick reference table summarizes CDC's [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] strategies to optimize personal protective equipment (PPE) supplies in healthcare settings and provides links to CDC's full guidance documents on optimizing supplies. These strategies offer a continuum of options using the framework of surge capacity when PPE supplies are stressed, running low, or absent. When using these strategies, healthcare facilities should: [1] Consider these options and implement them sequentially; [2] Understand their current PPE inventory, supply chain, and utilization rate; [3] Train healthcare personnel on PPE use and have them demonstrate competency with donning and doffing any PPE ensemble that is used to perform job responsibilities; [4] As PPE availability returns to normal, promptly resume standard practices."
