PPE SUPPLIES URGENTLY NEEDED

Marin and Sonoma County Doctors and Nurses need more adequate protective gear in combating the COVID

As cases of COVID-19 escalate around the country, physicians and other healthcare workers (HCWs) in Marin and Sonoma Counties are facing severe shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE). As a result of this shortage, recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for appropriate PPE for HCWs on the front lines have shifted. 

As quoted directly from the CDC website: “PPE recommendations for the care of patients with known or suspected COVID-19: Based on local and regional situational analysis of PPE supplies, face masks are an acceptable alternative when the supply chain of respirators cannot meet the demand."..."When the supply chain is restored, facilities with a respiratory protection program should return to use of respirators for patients with known or suspected COVID-19." 

This is unacceptable for the protective health of everyone! Please help us get adequate equipment to our healthcare workers today! Let's keep them safe as they treat this pandemic!  

We have already located sources of certified PPE which are readily available and starting partially relieve the need as we continue searching for more supply lines. 

Donate now so we can put an urgent order for supplies in today!

Testimonials

"I want to be able to take care of ICU patients, but if we aren’t protecting ourselves and our coworkers how will we stay safe and healthy. "

ICU Nurse,RN/CCRN, Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Medical Center 


ICU is the last defense line. It is the last defense line for the human being to fight back against this deadly pandemic that the like has not been seen for centuries. I do not want to imagine what will happen if this last defense line collapses. We need PPE to make this line unbreakable. We need your help.

Rui You, RN/CCRN, ICU, Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Medical Center   


At our facility, we expect to run out of PPE supplies in about 2 weeks.  Our chance of being infected will tremendously go up without proper protection.  We won't be able to protect our patients without protecting ourselves.  Having witnessed what happened to the many health care providers being infected in Wuhan and Italy, we shouldn't let it happen again here in the US.  We need proper N95 masks and PPEs to fight this war.

Dr. Rebecca Li, MD, Marin Health Internal Medicine, A UCSF Health Clinic   


Nurses and physicians tell their real life experiences combating COVID-19 with inadequate protection.

"As a physician, I do not know how long it takes to make an N95 mask, but I do know how long it takes to train a physician, a nurse practitioner, a physician’s assistant, a respiratory therapist or nurse. We are the supply chain that needs to be protected."

Dr. Milla J. Kviatkovsky, UC San Diego Health-Jacobs Medical Center   


As a physician, I have witnessed the tragedies of doctors and nurses in Wuhuan when there was lack of PPE (Personal Protection Equipment). We don’t want this happen in US. We really need community support in order for us to protect our community

Dr. Ying Cao, MD, Sutter Medical Group of the Redwoods
