BEAUFORT MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
There are a few different venues community members can take to help hospital workers, according to a new page on the hospital’s website.
▪ Donate personal protective equipment: The hospital is accepting donated items including:
N95 masks (medical grade, NIOSH certified, sizes large and small)
Examination gloves (sterile and unsterile, all sizes)
Protective glasses, goggles and shields
Thermometers (disposable strips or thermometers, or temporal infrared)
Homemade masks and face shields (please see details below)
All items must be unused and in unopened packages. They can be dropped off in the first-floor lobby at the Beaufort Memorial Medical Administrative Center on Ribaut Road between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
▪ Buy meals for staff: Individuals who want to help feed hospital staff should contact a local restaurant, place and pay for an order, and have the restaurant deliver the meal to the hospital. “In this way, we support both health care workers and our local restaurants whose business has been sharply curtailed by mandatory restrictions for on-site dining.” Restaurant owners looking to arrange a date for meal delivery should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
▪ Donate to the COVID-19 Relief Fund for hospital employees: Monetary donations made to the fund will support employees, patients and items of greatest need. To donate go online at https://www.bmhsc.org/ways-to-give/bmh-foundation/give-now or write a check payable to the BMH Foundation, PO Box 2233, Beaufort, South Carolina 29902.
