N95 Reprocessing

The global COVID-19 pandemic is putting an unprecedented strain on healthcare systems across the globe.  The shortage of critical personal protective equipment (PPE), including N95 respirators, made it necessary for UCSF Health to explore new technologies and techniques to better preserve our resources.  To ensure that we have sufficient reources to provide the highest standard of patient care, the PPE Resilience Committee, in collaboration with the Sterile Processing Department, is conducting a pilot program to reprocess N95 masks.
