They have provided and will continue to provide fit testing for frontline health officers, nurses and staff at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Klang Port, Hospital Sugai Buloh, and eight other district hospitals and healthcare facilities.
Thailand Srinagarind Hospital (Khon Kaen) approached our channel partner, Innovative Instrument, and initiated a quantitative fit testing session for their healthcare personnel. TSI PortaCount™ quantitative fit tests were performed for staff in the Emergency Department.
During the test, the Innovative Instrument team educated hospital workers on the importance of wearing a mask that fits properly.
