Abstract / Description

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was difficult for healthcare facilities to locate sites that could provide the correct amounts of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). The purpose of this senior-level internship was to ensure Good Shepherd Hospice Care had an adequate amount of PPE supplies for their employees and patients. As a part of my project, I worked to guarantee the PPE supply room was organized and that staff could locate their materials promptly. I also maintained proper documentation in Microsoft Excel to calculate the difference of the supplies used during the two-week time frame. I also gained valuable insight into the coronavirus impact on hospice and palliative care.
