The safety and protection of caregivers is a top priority for hospitals as we work diligently to overcome the unprecedented health care crisis caused by COVID-19. 

Hospitals and health systems are strictly following CDC guidelines when it comes to the use of personal protective equipment (PPE), especially respirators like the N95 masks.

The situation on the front lines changes on a daily basis, and hospitals are doing everything in their ability to protect staff and safely care for patients during this pandemic. This mission is of the utmost importance to FAH members.
