As coronavirus continues to strain our healthcare supply chain, the industry at large –including acute and non-acute providers – is taking action to safely extend the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) on hand. We’ve compiled best practices to help ensure worker and patient safety during extended use of PPE.
Facilities with difficulty obtaining supplies should reach out to Premier for assistance. In certain cases, Premier has been able to work through the traditional channels to free up urgently needed supplies, particularly in the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case in the facility or community.
