CRMC requests protective equipment donations
During this national pandemic, Cuyuna Regional Medical Center in Crosby is calling on community members and businesses for donations of medical supplies to help meet ongoing health care needs and to conserve existing personal protective equipment for providers who are engaged in the coronavirus response.
CRMC is not short on essential PPE at this point but welcomes donations to prepare for an expected influx of patients.
Supplies requested include protective face masks, hand-sewn ear loop masks and homemade mask filters for which the material will be provided. Also needed are disposable long-sleeved plastic gowns, non-plastic isolation gowns, N-95 masks, clear plastic face shields, safety goggles and safety glasses.
CRMC also welcomes notes of gratitude and encouragement for staff that will be shared in a safe manner.
Supplies may be safely donated from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, at CRMC’s employee parking lot along Highway 210 in Crosby. When you come to donate items, remain in your vehicle. A staff member will come to you to accept your donation. Look for a tent and “donation” signage as you arrive.
For answers to any donation questions or an alternative time to make a donation, contact Jennifer Podsiadly at Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org .
