Lowe, J., Paladino, K., Farke, J., et al. (n.d.). N95 Filtering Facepiece Respirator Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) Process for Decontamination and Reuse. (Accessed 3/26/2020.) Nebraska Medicine.
The authors describe Nebraska Medicine’s evidence-based procedure to decontaminate N95 filtering facepiece respirators via ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) to enable their re-use and extend the institution’s stockpile. The document includes a diagram depicting the room setup where UVGI takes place, a process map detailing the decontamination steps, roles and responsibilities, and an appendix with photos depicting the process.
