Across Saskatchewan, front-line health care workers are giving their all to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. Parkland College is giving what it can, in the form of much needed supplies.
The College recently packed up boxes and bags of materials to send to the Saskatchewan Health Authority. The contribution included 190 N95 masks, more than 7,000 nitrile gloves, and hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, goggles, respirators, reagents, and gowns.
Many of these materials were sourced from the College’s health care programs, including Nursing, Continuing Care Assistant, and Primary Care Paramedic. But staff also collected items from the facilities department, and the chemistry/biology lab and Power Engineering lab at the Trades & Technology Centre in Yorkton.
