Fellow members need your help in answering critical questions. As an exclusive service to members, the OFDA's Q&A page allows you to share common questions and maybe not-so-common answers. You can even share your stories of unique and/or interesting services that you have provided. Maybe your story will answer someone's question before they even ask it!

As we navigate a completely new landscape, we are having to think strategically ahead to plan for the unknown. We have had to make changes that a month ago, would have seemed unbelievable. One of the areas we need to be planning for in the weeks and months coming is the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
While some PPE used by funeral home staff is intended for single use only and should be disposed of as soon as it is removed, embalmers also wear reusable PPE that must be cleaned and disinfected after each use.
This informative program will help you obtain a better understanding of how to conserve, use and care for your PPE along with some alternate options.
