Nebraska Medical Association issues statewide call for medical supplies

The Nebraska Medical Association issued a statewide call to businesses Wednesday requesting donations of medical supplies to meet the needs of the stateís physician clinics and hospitals.

The organization, which represents nearly 3,000 physicians, residents and medical students, is seeking bulk supplies of equipment such as surgical masks, N95 masks, eye protection, medical grade disposable gloves and scrubs.

Amy Reynoldson, the groupís executive vice president, said production of such supplies is ramping up across the country, although itís not yet clear when those will arrive. Supply drives by some health systems also have brought in donations.

But small physician clinics and hospitals are running short.

1. while I applaud their goals, and wish them some success ..

it serves to remind that bake sales and car washes don't really stand in the place of an adequate government .. or health care .. or insurance .. or disaster management ..
