Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) demand is creating blue wrap shortages
Both, the AORN (the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses) as well as the IAHCSMM (the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management) in the USA informed their members about shortage of sterilization wraps.
According to that information the current PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) demand is creating sterilization wrap shortages.
Sterilization is critical to your operation. As many wrap manufacturers answer the call and turn resources to the manufacture of critical PPE, some healthcare facilities are seeing a shortage of blue wrap. If you’re experiencing gaps in supply, now might be the right time to switch to rigid containers and help take the pressure off the strained PPE market.
Global demand for PPE is here to stay. Switch to rigid sterile containers and reduce the need for blue wrap, helping to keep the resources where they’re needed most.
