University helps Uppsala University Hospital with protective equipment
Hundreds of protective face shields, face masks, safety glasses, aprons and bottles of hand sanitiser from Uppsala University were delivered to Uppsala University Hospital on Friday afternoon, in response to the acute shortage of certain items of personal protective equipment at the emergency services centre ahead of the weekend.
“And this morning I received a message from our contact at the hospital saying that the equipment was already used this weekend,” the University’s environmental director Karolina Kjellberg said on Monday morning.
With Uppsala University Hospital warning about a shortage of protective equipment, many people are eager to help. The Unit for Environment and Physical Work Environment (EMFA) at the University’s Buildings Division was in a position to help coordinate the desire to get involved.
