Abstract

Wizner, K., Stradtman, L., Novak, D., and Shaffer, R. (2016). Prevalence of respiratory protective devices in U.S. healthcare facilities: implications for emergency preparedness. Workplace Health & Safety, 64(8):359-368. (Original DOI: 10.1177/2165079916657108)

Information from the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO; 2014) report was incorrectly paraphrased due to a misinterpretation. On p. 363, the original text states, “The ASTHO estimated that in 2014, on average, 21 PAPRs per hospital were available with PAPR purchasing in hospitals increasing from 131,387 purchased in 2011 to more than four million purchased the following year (ASTHO, 2014).”

The correct text is as follows: “The ASTHO estimated that, on average, 21 PAPRs per hospital were available with PAPR purchasing in hospitals ranging from 0 to 131,387 between 2011 and 2012 (ASTHO, 2014).”
