As New York braces for a heat wave in the next few days, medical and dental businesses need to be prepared for the impact on their operations. Extreme hot weather can affect a variety of medical and dental supplies, so it's important to take steps to protect them.

Here are some of the supplies that can be affected by extreme hot weather:

  • Medications: Medications can degrade in high temperatures, so they should be stored in a cool, dry place.
  • Blood products: Blood products can also degrade in high temperatures, so they should be stored in a refrigerator or freezer.
  • Medical devices: Some medical devices, such as thermometers and infusion pumps, can malfunction in high temperatures.
  • Dental supplies: Dental supplies, such as amalgam fillings and crowns, can also be affected by extreme hot weather.

In addition to protecting your supplies, you also need to take steps to protect your patients from the heat. This includes providing them with a cool place to wait, offering them fluids, and making sure they are dressed appropriately.

If you are concerned about the impact of the heat wave on your medical or dental business, you can contact SurgiMac for help. We can help you assess your needs and make sure you have the right supplies to protect your patients and your business.

Here are some additional tips for protecting your medical and dental supplies during a heat wave:

  • Check the storage conditions for all of your supplies. Make sure they are stored in a cool, dry place.
  • Use a thermometer to check the temperature of your storage area. The ideal temperature for storing medical and dental supplies is between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If you do not have a cool, dry storage area, you can rent a refrigerator or freezer.
  • Label all of your supplies with the date they were purchased. This will help you to track the age of your supplies and ensure that they are not expired.
  • Dispose of any expired supplies.
  • Monitor the weather forecast and be prepared to take action if the temperature rises. This may include moving your supplies to a cooler location or using a backup generator to power your refrigerator or freezer.SurgiMac's patient apparel collection offers superior comfort and fashionable protection
