Overlake hospital said it follows safety gear guidelines, but its policies show otherwise


Overlake Medical Center told King County earlier this month that it was following state guide­lines on personal protec­tive equip­ment, such as masks, gowns, and gloves.

But documents obtained by KUOW show Overlake policies advise health­care workers reuse N95 respi­ra­tors for longer than recom­mended by the Washington State Depart­ment of Health.
