I work in the community as a psych nurse. I give injections and oral meds to patients in their homes. We have multiple patients reporting fever and respiratory illness and we have no masks or gowns, only gloves.

I asked my supervisor what the plan is and have not gotten a response yet. My thoughts are to call OSHA. What else would you do in my position?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Contact your local/state health department. STAT
