PPE supplies needed now!
Quinte Health Care needs your help. As you are likely aware, there is a global shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
QHC’s current inventory is not adequate and they have received no timelines for when more will be coming.
We are hoping you may consider reviewing your contacts and reaching out to seek donations of any/all unused and unopened PPE including goggles, face shields, gloves, gowns, Tyvek, masks (particularly N95 masks) to be used by QHC staff and physicians in Picton.
For example any type of industrial facility, mechanical shops, paving companies, veterinarians and construction companies may possibility have a stock of PPE. QHC will even take expired items such as gloves or N95 masks as they can use those for mask-fit testing of our staff/physicians.
Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated. Anyone able to donate may drop supplies off at the Emergency entrance at PECM Hospital (403 Main St., Picton). Items will be kept and used in Picton.
