Hey Nurseman, I was wondering what the full face mask and respirator looked like. They were threatening to use those last week if there were any more staff transmissions. What colour scrubs would look best with that -green or blue?:D

We had a Doctor who went to Toronto for Easter. She said the hole town is shut down. She has family there, the reason she went was to bring her parents masks.....i guess you cant find them anywhere there. Use you own disscretion. we actually had some of the office staff worried she was there and could of brought something back.

The focal point of the problem seems to be in the Scarborough area. Scarborough Grace Hospital is pretty much where it started. Most of the GTA area hospitals seem to have it under control (ER has re-opened).

Just have a great time!!

What a suprise, doctors are the worst offenders when it comes to ignoring infection control measures. Gee, that never happened before.

I have been doing some shifts as a screener at the entrance to our hospital and have been AMAZED at how some of the docs are behaving. I have had them complain and try to get out of having to wash their hands, wear their masks properly and answer the questionnaire. When you consider the fact that many of them visit more than one hospital I find it absolutely disgraceful and actually threatenned to call security and bar one from entering.

Jenn, I think the town was shut down for the easter holiday, not because of SARS. I haven't noticed a big difference in activity around my place. Also, they are selling N95 masks through several uniform stores if ordinary people want to buy them.

:D

Our uniforms are blue and they match the masks quite nicely. :D

I have seen this mask advertised for SARS protection at http://www.anisafety.com/dp/

The masks are used at the factory where I work for a variety of jobs. When I do my plant walk about I frequently talk to polishers that are wearing those masks. If they want to be understood they have to talk quite loud or yell if there is any background noise. I did not know the hospitals were threatening to use them. I pity you if you do.
