N-95 mask decontamination

We’ve transitioned from the UV decontamination process for N-95 masks to the new Bioquell Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide process. This allows masks to safely be decontaminated up to 20 times.

The examination room at the Sie Center for Down Syndrome has purple walls, an exam table, a low room table with two matching chairs, two blue chairs with multicolored polkadots, a computer work station and a mostly white floor with blue, green and yellow tiles interspersed.

Exam room turnover

We have guidance on the use of HEPA filters and room turnover rates for others to use in their practice to remove airborne contaminants.
