Hospital Replacement

OAHS Receives Grant & Funding for PortaCount

OAHS received state grant funding as well as a generous contribution from the OAHS Ladies Auxiliary for the purchase of a PortaCount machine for Fit Testing our N95 masks. The N95 mask looks similar to a regular surgical mask but is made of a heavier filter material and has two straps. In the event of an emergency where there is the risk of possible exposure to an airborne organism, the N95 mask would be utilized to prevent the employee from breathing in the organism. The PortaCount machine allows us to test the employee for maximum fit to ensure their safety in an airborne event. It is a requirement by OSHA to have ALL employees tested yearly. The purchase of this equipment will make it much easier to accomplish this goal. We will be starting employee Fit Testing as soon as possible for both Northridge and Hospital employees.

A big thank you to the Auxiliary for their help with purchasing this equipment and for their continued support of OAHS!
