Summary:Sewing scrub hats for Royal Melbourne Hospital and other hospital nurses. Hats are no longer part of a ward nurses uniform. The CoronaVirus could be on their hair and nurses can't help but touch their hair. These scrub hats are being donated to hospitals to help protect our heroes in the hospital system. Volunteers are sewing these hats (either shower cap or scrub hat styled) and they are using their own or donated materials and elastics. Infection control procedures in place before distribution.
Challenge:800 caps made but over 10,000 needed and more hospitals daily requesting these. Sew-ers are running out of materials. We are in lock-down and can't shop!
Solution:With funds raised we will centrally purchase fabrics and postbags online, address the post bag to the nominated hospital recipient and have them delivered directly to sewers. Sewers when next purchasing food can pop the pre-addressed bags of made up scrub hats into the mail direct to the nominated nursing unit managers in each requesting hospital.
Long term impact:More protection for our front line workers in Australian hospitals during COVID-19.
