CARY, N.C., April 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry donated much needed PPE in Cary, NC to WakeMed Hospital, Johnston Health Hospital in Smithfield, NC and New Hanover Regional Medical Center of Wilmington during the COVID-19 viral outbreak. Hospitals all over the country are experiencing shortages of critical protective equipment like face masks and gloves to keep their staff safe while treating patients who may have the virus. This donation upholds the Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry belief in protecting the health and well-being of their community and their healthcare providers.
"This is an unprecedented time in history, and we need to act now to support our communities. We are treating people with emergency dental needs, trying to do our part to keep them out of emergency rooms so that the hospital beds can be used to help treat the virus. As healthcare providers ourselves, we understand the need for proper protection as it keeps the medical teams and their patients safe," said Dr. Michael Riccobene, CEO of Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry.
During the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, hospitals around the country are experiencing drastic shortages of key protective equipment for their staff when treating possible infected patients. With an increase of patients being admitted into hospitals, current supplies do not cover the demand healthcare workers are experiencing. Medical masks and gloves are designed to be used once, and with hundreds of new cases of COVID-19 reported every day, supplies are dangerously low. Donations like the one provided by Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry support hospital healthcare workers, allowing them to stay safe while they treat patients.
