HCA member organizations have also shared some resources, including clinical protocols and training videos on personal protective equipment (PPE) “donning and doffing.” Links to these resources are below. We extend gratitude to providers for sharing.
If your organization has some turnkey resources to share, please notify HCA’s Communications Director Roger Noyes at firstname.lastname@example.org, especially if the resources are already hosted online and are being updated (as needed) from your own content management systems.
