DH&L ambulance remains committed to providing the best care possible to the communities we serve. To that effect, you might see our providers wearing personal protective equipment that seems unusual in the near future. Our department has made it our policy that for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic our providers will don N-95 face masks, gloves and googles/safety glasses on every call. This is to protect both the provider and the PT from potential exposure. you may also see them wearing surgical style gowns or other body coverings to reduce droplet contamination and cross spread contamination to other areas and PTs. As our stocks of N-95 masks dwindle we have a few P-100 masks that will be worn along with Powered air purifying respirators, as need arises.
