April 27, 2020 by Talia Jeanlouis How do offices put in requests for masks for clinical personnel? Facilities and providers are expected to source their own personal protective equipment including masks, through normal supply chains. If unable to obtain adequate PPE, the facility/provider cannot provide services. Under certain circumstances, providers of urgent/emergent procedures (such as hospitals) unable to source PPE should reach out to their local emergency operations center (EOC). Your local EOC will provide the resources requested if available, or they will submit your request for further processing to the State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC).
