Mayo Clinic MRI lab technologist Kathryn Scharnweber has traded her blue medical scrubs this month for a bandanna and jeans to help make 300,000 emergency face shields at Pepin Manufacturing for the health system.
As nonessential medical services stopped, 35 Mayo nurses, lab techs and athletic trainers volunteered to be transferred to the Lake City manufacturing plant.
“We decreased patients volume [at Mayo] because of COVID-19 so we didn’t have anything to do really,” said Scharnweber, a 16-year Mayo employee. “And they needed help at Pepin Manufacturing, so it worked out great.”
Pepin — a family-owned operation with more than $5 million in revenue — normally makes wound seals, electrodes, defibrillator parts and 800 other medical products for customers under contract.
Four weeks ago, Mayo operations vice chairman Bruce Mairose called asking for help, said Jon Solberg, Pepin’s business development manager. “We never made a face shield,” Solberg said. “But we wanted to help out.”
We have been supplying our new face shields out to the healthcare industry and have been amazed at the requests we have had for individuals and smaller groups to order them. We have set up a process to be able to accommodate as many groups that are in need during this situation as possible.
As this pandemic continues, we will continue to support the healthcare industry through our production of face shields as we near our one-millionth shield shipped. Below you’ll find both our current masks. The 3M 14 mil anti-fog shield features a more durable thickness and a fogresistant coating for better visibility and safety. We are extremely proud of our shields and love seeing our customers tagging us in their photos with their face shields! Please feel free to continue to do so. We are all in this together.
