Information to support those on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic
3M is responding to the rapidly changing COVID-19 outbreak by providing supplies where they are needed the most. Around the world, we are working with healthcare customers, government and medical officials to help provide critical products. 3M has increased production at our global manufacturing facilities including in the U.S., Asia Pacific, Europe and Latin America.
3M is committed to supporting the public health and government response to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet we understand you may have limited in-person access to your 3M sales representative. We want to provide you with access to resources that can help solve some of these needs during this challenging time.
Hand hygiene is recognized as a key strategy in reducing the spread of infection between individuals who visit or work in health care facilities. Increasing the frequency of antiseptic hand rub use and/or handwashing reduces the risk of contracting and spreading communicable diseases. Designed to maintain skin integrity, the 3M™ Avagard™ Hand Hygiene range offers solutions ranging from alcohol-based hand rubs to at-sink hand washes (plain and antimicrobial). Use the below links to access other helpful resources to help reduce the risk of contamination spread in your facility.
Hospitals and clinicians may need to transition patients to their homes sooner than expected to help free up hospital space and resources. These transitions also prevent healthcare practitioners and potential at-risk patients from being exposed to viruses and other illnesses.
But, for some patients, access to wound care clinics or home health visits may now be disrupted. We’re here to help enable, navigate and empower continued care for your patients outside of the hospital.
We recognise that you’re being asked to do far more with far less right now, and protecting health care providers with PPE continues to be our top priority. We’re also here to support you by helping to reduce the risk of secondary complications and minimise inefficiencies with guidelines, best practices and resources so that you can focus on what matters most – providing care to your patients.
