The Joint Commission Provides a Follow-Up FAQ to Its Homemade Face Masks Statement
This blog was originally published on NAMSS Insights: A Blog for Medical Services Professionals.
On April 6, The Joint Commission posted an FAQ in response to their statement on homemade PPE. The FAQ provides background and additional protocol for The Joint Commission’s position on healthcare workers using homemade PPE and on hospitals prioritizing N95 masks and N95 respirators for high-risk staff exposed to aerosolized viral particles.
The FAQ also provides additional prioritization guidance to help hospitals conserve N95 masks and other PPE for high-risk personnel.
