Face Masks

  1. Hey All,
    I am a Peds BMT nurse and I currently am taking care of a deaf pt. The pt mom said that they make clear masks, however our hospital only carries the yellow and blue "bulldog" masks. I was just currious if anyone out there in a transplant setting has seen or used a clear mask. I am trying to teach my self some sign language but I am sure that it is not very good. It is hard for the pt because people's facial expressions cannot be seen when wearing the mask. Thanks.

    [font="comic sans ms"][color="dimgray"]did the mom say where to get these clear masks? i know my hospital doesn't have them. but we don't do transplants either.
    ask the mom where to get them and get the hospital to order them.

    She said the social worker from the School for the Deaf and Blind stated that they were made but she did not know where to get them from.
