Prisma Health says it's now accepting donations of medical supplies during COVID-19 outbreak
Prisma Health said Friday that it will be accepting donations of personal protective equipment and other supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prisma said it will take supplies in high demand, including N-95 masks, surgical masks, splash-guard face shields, goggles, non-latex gloves, reusable or disposable isolation gowns, no-contact infrared thermometers calibrated for humans and ventilators.
Disposable and single-use personal protective equipment that is new and sterile will also be accepted.
At this time, Prisma Health is not accepting homemade masks for healthcare workers, but is working with community partners to identify organizations that can use homemade masks and will provide more information about donation when it becomes available.
Those interested in donations should contact Berri Heinz, Manager, Procurement & Supplier Diversity, at Berri.Heinz@PrismaHealth.org.
