Medical Supply Conservation Principles

With the current level of shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other critical medical supplies, and the likely continued strain on the supply chain into the future, veterinary hospitals will need to carefully consider how best to conserve, and possibly safely substitute, these necessary supplies. The MAB has compiled a set of principles to guide hospital leadership as they develop conservation strategies for their teams.

These principles and a summary of recommendations have been outlined in our latest document, which you can download here. We hope this information provides you with greater insight on the subject, so you can determine what’s best for your practice and patients.
