As a former paramedic, I understand the stress on our front line healthcare staff and the day to day issues that come from having to wear PPE for an entire shift, day after day.
Surgical masks, which are worn by a majority of healthcare workers right now, attach to the wearer’s face by looping around your ears. The very thin elastic, with constant use, causes significant irritation to the ears. This is a washable, comfortable cap with nylon “buttons” sewn in behind the ear with specific angles and location to allow wearers to loop the mask there, removing the pressure of the elastic from the wearer’s ear. These are 100% washable.
