Hospital Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Planning Tool / Calculator


Purpose: The Hospital Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Planning Tool is designed to help hospitals determine approximate minimum PPE needs based on special pathogen category and a number of facility specific variables. Calculators are included for Ebola Virus Disease/Viral Hemorrhagic Fever (EVD/VHF) as well as special respiratory pathogens such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome/Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (MERS/SARS), and for pandemic influenza. The tool does not provide information for less virulent pathogens. It is not intended as a clinical tool and should be used as a pre-incident planning tool and NOT during an outbreak.

You can find it in Plans, Tools, and Templates.
