Several departments within The University of Tampa’s College of Natural and Health Sciences (CNHS) have donated excess personal protective equipment (PPE) — normally for student and faculty use in clinical and scientific teaching labs — to Tampa General Hospital (TGH).
The departments — including nursing, physician assistant medicine, biology, chemistry, and health sciences and human performance — donated surgical masks, isolation gowns, N95 masks, gloves and other items that can be used by health care workers caring for patients with COVID-19.
The Department of Nursing organized the donation and delivered it to TGH.
A second donation of exam gloves is being organized by UT’s Department of Biology, which is planning to donate them to Hillsborough County for distribution to area hospitals, nursing facilities and other places. All of the CNHS departments that use exam gloves are donating them.
“The CNHS faculty and staff have appreciated the opportunity to do something directly related to tackling the pandemic,” said Paul Greenwood, dean of CNHS.
