“We are handling 50 or more calls every day for PPE. If we don’t have the right PPE for a certain request, we go find it for our customers – even if that means connecting them with some distilleries making sanitizer or people making home made masks.”Josh Burt of Soundview Medical Supply

How are the medical supplies companies managing the COVID-19 pandemic? Especially in the thick of it in states like Washington, and in a state where they are in an “adult family home/assisted living boom” right now? We talk with senior care expert Josh Burt of Soundview Medical Supply to find out.
- Hear how they are handling the 50+ phone calls every day for PPE
- Find out if the homemade masks are working
- Learn the latest news from the hard-hit Washington state
- Understand how the state is responding to the stay-at-home order
As always, we ask our guests, “In one-year from today, what would you like the world to look like?”
“The coolest thing I’m seeing right now is the collaboration between care homes. One care home will post in our FB Group that they are out of face masks and another will respond by sending them some of their supply.”Josh Burt of Soundview Medical Supply
