LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) - Nebraska Medical Association’s member physicians are calling on all industries to help fulfill a desperate need of medical supplies for local physician clinics and hospitals statewide.

The NMA asks any business that may have a bulk supply of medical equipment, such as surgical masks, N95 masks, eye protection, medical grade disposable gloves, and scrubs, to donate them.

The NMA says businesses that may have access to such supplies include dental clinics, tattoo parlors, nail salons, manufacturing companies, and construction companies.

The group says businesses should contact their physician clinic or hospital to make arrangements to drop off needed supplies.
