MCTC Donates Medical Supplies to Community Health Facilities

Maysville Community and Technical College (MCTC) has answered a “call to action” in the effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
When MCTC allied health faculty were recently contacted by local health facilities looking for PPE (personal protective equipment) and other essential supplies they immediately put a plan into action.
Volunteers from Medical Assisting, Nursing and Respiratory Care programs among others collected and delivered the supplies to community organizations and facilities in need.
Supplies such as face masks, disposable exam gloves, protective gowns, respiratory care kits, disinfectant wipes and more were donated to the cause.
Typically, these supplies are used for clinical and hands-on laboratory training exercises for future healthcare workers enrolled at the college. But like many other colleges across Kentucky and the country, MCTC has temporarily moved to an online curriculum. This made the much-needed supplies available to share with health organizations working to protect our communities.
“In times of need, this is both our civic and spiritual duty, to help others,” says Dr. Rhonda Sims, Nursing Instructor for the college.
