A number of the 3M 8210 masks have now expired. Safer Care Victoria is working with 3M to determine whether these masks are still safe to continue using, as they have been determined to be in other countries.
However, until we have confirmation from Safer Care Victoria, we ask you to immediately inspect the expiry date located on the bottom of the box. If the expiry date is still valid you can continue using these on your ward.
If the expiry date has passed, follow the steps below. Please do not dispose of them.
What do I need to do with the 3M 8210 masks?
- Immediately return expired 3M 8210 masks to your closest Nursing Coordinator’s office
- Procurement will arrange collection from the Nursing Coordinator’s Offices
What can I replace the mask with?
- If you need an N95 mask please order via Iproc – the closest variant is the 3M 1860 (Iproc:402433) or BYD N95 (Iproc:402455)
