Coronavirus Impact: San Francisco nurse creates possible solution to face mask miscommunication issue
Where We Came From:
Jeanne Hahne first thought of the idea for the FaceView Mask™ in 1979 while working as an RN in a burn unit because she was having trouble connecting with her patients. In 1980, while pursuing her Master’s Degree at the University of Florida, her thesis topic explored the importance of communication between the clinician and patient, which included her vision for a clear surgical face mask. Her first patent for the mask was in 1982.
Mrs. Hahne graduated from the University of San Francisco’s School of Nursing in 1975 and received a Masters of Nursing from the University of Florida in 1982. She has been an RN for over 43 years and worked at San Francisco’s California Pacific Medical Center in Ambulatory Care in the pre- and post-surgical unit for the last 30 years. She is an active volunteer, wife, mother, and former table tennis champion.
