Face Shields: “Watching the supply chain for basic medical supplies fall apart as COVID-19 swept across the county was shocking. I began looking at what unique resources I had access to that could help fill a critical void. I happened to read about people using 3D printers to print frames to assemble face shields. That was my ah-ha moment. Several years ago, my husband taught a 3D printing class. I knew there were 3D printers in several classrooms around the county - classrooms that were sitting empty as our schools were closed for the foreseeable future.
With no hesitation to approve his request, he was able to borrow a total of 8 printers that we set up at home. I was able to find a source for the plastic that actually offered to partner with us when I told them what we were using it for! The plan was in full motion!
We have since networked with other people in the community who are now printing the frames and together, we will be able to provide hundreds of full protective face shields to area hospitals, healthcare workers, and emergency services!”

“My hospital colleagues and I are communicating with physicians around the U.S. in emergency medicine and critical care specialties learning about Covid 19 in real-time to create a plan for our local community. We hope to circumvent problems before they present in our emergency rooms. This disease process presents numerous challenges and we strive to be as prepared as possible. Staying focused, being in the moment.”
“Today my use of hand sanitizer has increased 20 x my traditional usage as an ER Doctor. In addition to my time at the hospital, at home I am cleaning more often, which is adding to the dryness of my hands. The alcohols and soaps are hard on all our hands. Moisturizing your hands multiple times a day, will make a difference.”
