Nurses and medical staff at Methodist Dallas Medical Center turned a conference room into a sewing workshop to make personal protective equipment.

Safety wear like masks, gowns and gloves, called PPE, are in high demand, and hospitals across the nation are experiencing shortages.

The hospital is planning ahead in accordance with Centers for Disease Control guidelines, according to spokesman Ryan Owens.

 “In the event that extended or reuse of PPE is required, it will only be in accordance with CDC guidelines, as well as local, state and federal authorities.”
