Other PPE Preservation Resources
PPE Preservation Planning Toolkit
The PPE Preservation Planning Toolkit is a dynamic tool designed to guide any organization that uses personal-protective equipment (PPE) to estimate the benefits of preservation practices during contingency and crisis capacity PPE shortages.
The toolkit is a resource that allows users to plan how to extend the duration and utility of existing PPE supplies to alleviate challenges related to disposable PPE consumables, including medical gloves, N95 respirators, surgical masks, face shields/eye protection, and gowns. The toolkit allows users to discover how implementing PPE preservation strategies may prevent or mitigate PPE shortages.
If you are interested in a demo of this Toolkit or have questions, please contact COVID-Healthcare-RFI@hhs.gov to coordinate.
