Leadership continues to evaluate homemade solutions presented by staff to aid with the prolonged use of PPE. Two options have been approved to help alleviate the discomfort of earloop masks.
Hair clips like those pictured are approved for use to secure earloop masks. Also approved are the thick fabric headbands with large buttons like the one pictured.
The use of homemade masks and other homemade PPE is still prohibited at this time.
Ultrasound Technologists Shannon Adams, Lisa Carter and Nicole Herren model the approved headbands, which can make earloop masks more comfortable when worn for long periods of time.
