UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's calls for community help with COVID-19

by -

null

UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s joins health systems across Iowa in securing enough Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to meet the needs of health care providers, staff and patients during COVID-19. We are working tirelessly to obtain PPE from every channel – government, the private sector, new innovative companies and generous members of the public – to get the protective equipment that supports our patients and caregivers. The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the biggest challenges we’ve ever faced. We’re meeting it continuing to do what we do every day: provide the best patient care possible.

How YOU can help

Masks

We’ve been overwhelmed by the generous offers we’ve received from the community to make masks. We want to begin using these masks in areas of indirect patient care to help us preserve our supplies. We ask that you follow the pattern and instructions here when making masks.

Supply Donations

We’re also collecting supplies for the masks at all drop off locations. Supplies we’re currently collecting are:

  • Vacuum bags - cloth hepa filter is preferred
  • 1/8-inch elastic
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Double-sided adhesive tape (such as dress tape or Gorilla glue)

The most important thing everyone can do is to continue to practice physical distancing. Social distancing refers to public health interventions that can help stop infectious disease transmission by avoiding crowds and large gatherings such as weddings, concerts, conferences, sporting events, and mass transit. Best practice requires maintaining at least a six-foot distance between yourself and others.


The
CDC recommends the following:

  • Wash your hands properly—and often—or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick or have been exposed to COVID-19
  • Practice social distancing
  • Stay home if you aren’t feeling well
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces
