Northwestern’s Charles Morton Share Trust Division of Nursing Donates to Integris Bass Baptist Hospital
March 30, 2020
Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Charles Morton Share Trust Division of Nursing donated personal protective equipment to Integris Bass Baptist Hospital to aid in the nationwide shortage.
With Northwestern’s nursing program using alternative instructional delivery methods for the remainder of the semester, an abundance of these items were no longer needed to complete coursework.
“Northwestern nursing values its relationships with our clinical partners,” said Dr. Shelly Wells, professor of nursing and chair of the Charles Morton Share Trust Division of Nursing. “By donating the personal protective equipment from our Ketterman Lab inventory, we hope to provide some relief to those nurses and other health care providers addressing the needs of the many patients coming in with complex health issues.”
More than 700 items were donated and included particulate respirator masks, surgical masks with face shields, surgical masks with ties, ear loop face masks, yellow isolation gowns, isolation packs and training equipment.
