HIDA: Medical supply chain delayed 37 days

Container ships waiting off Port of Los Angeles

Everyone knows the current pandemic has impacted supply chains worldwide. While a shortage of phones and gadgets is an annoyance, shortages of medical supplies is very concerning.

According to the Health Industry Distributors Association (HIDA), as many as 12,000 containers of critical medical supplies are currently delayed by an average of 37 days! Much of that time is spent languishing in US ports. HIDA is recommending a "fast pass" system to prioritize critical medical supplies.

Meanwhile, Primis Medical has a large stock of N95 surgical masks, high quality nitrile disposable exam gloves and sterile surgical gloves. We also carry level 3 and level 4 sterile surgical gowns as well as level 2 isolation gowns. Please give one of our sales staff a call, and they'll be happy to help you source any other critical supplies you need.
