Protecting healthcare workers, who are on the frontlines of the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, is a top priority of Illinois hospitals and health systems.  Hospitals and health systems are working every day, with public and private partners and stakeholders, to make sure that their healthcare workers have the personal protective equipment (PPE) they need to be safe and healthy, and to comply with the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Illinois Department of Public Health.  As part of the Illinois hospital community’s ongoing efforts to secure PPE, IHA has compiled a brief overview of available approaches to address PPE supply issues.
