Hospital Processes and Re-uses over 1,000 Respirators in 1 Week

Updated: Apr 23, 2020

We received some photos from a regional hospital in southern Michigan.

They reported that they have processed over 1,000 N95 disposable respirators through the Mask-Sanitizer they received last week, on Thursday, April 9, 2020.

Wow! That is impressive and is super to hear.

The photos show how they are marking the face masks and bagging the face masks. the marking ensures the same person is returned his/her face mask for re-use. The bagging is to keep the operators safe for handling of the face masks.

About the Mask-Sanitizer:

The Mask-Sanitizer is a Portable On-Site Face Mask Disinfection Chamber for disposable face masks. The disinfection method is eight (8) germicidal UV-C bulbs positioned in front of and behind the N95 face masks. 10 face masks can be disinfected during each 15-minute cycle. The Mask-Sanitizer can be used at hospitals, fire stations, police stations, nursing homes, etc., and can be located near the actual point of use. One or more mask-sanitizers can be located at each station, department, wing, hallway or emergency room, so there is no need to handle and disinfect mass numbers of masks at a central or off-site location. The Mask-Sanitizer is simple to operate, easy to roll around, and versatile enough to be transported in the back of a minivan or SUV.
