Fairfield Memorial Hospital Auxiliary has stepped up to help Fairfield Memorial Hospital in the fight against the Coronavirus. The FMH Auxiliary volunteers have started sewing isolation masks and gowns to prevent our hospital from running out of masks and gowns for the staff and patients during this time. The Auxiliary has been working closely with FMH leaders to ensure the masks and gowns serve the necessary standards for medical use and reach the required safety protocols.
“We are so thankful to our FMH Auxiliary for always thinking of ways to help support the needs of our patients and staff. We have worked hard and diligently to serve our community and staff and make sure we are taking all the necessary precautions during this time. Shortages of specialized masks and gowns in our country have resorted us to look in other areas to prevent us from going without the safety gear we need for our patients and staff. We cannot thank this group of wonderful volunteers enough for their continued service and dedication to this organization.” stated Katherine Bunting-Williams, Ph.D., FMH Chief Executive Officer.
