Hello, We have our patients wear a standard ear loop mask during their recovery period. We have never used an N95. Caroline Costello

In light of the international shortage of PPE, we are reviewing our practice of having BMT patients wear a N95 masks in the hallways in the hospital and while outside of their home/crowded areas during the transplant recovery period.
Can you please share if you have your BMT patients wear a mask in either of these situations and what type of mask?
Thank you, Liz
