Person Protective Equipment Shortage
on April 07, 2020
With mask being in limited supply, HME suppliers are scrambling to find masks and are often taking anything they can find. VGM is continuing our efforts to obtain, source, and/or uncover opportunities for our members as it relates to PPE offerings. We are in contact with our contracted vendor and distribution partners on a routine basis to get updates. We request and are provided updates with allocation procedures specific to distribution of these critical items. VGM posts this information where applicable on our website for all vendor partner updates. VGM’s focus is assisting the frontline workers in desperate need of these necessary items to function in a healthcare setting.
