United Medical Equipment Business Solutions Network (“UME”) (“UMEBSNI”), the distributor of a comprehensive line of COVID-19 products, stands out as a trusted source of reliable and authentic personal protective equipment (“PPE”) supplies. The SARS-CoV-2 virus is mainly transmitted by inhalation of respiratory droplets, but in poorly ventilated indoor settings, aerosol transmission may also happen. For this reason, gowns, gloves, eye protection and an N95 or equivalent respirator are needed, especially in the healthcare environment. Indispensable for health care professionals caring for patients with SARS-CoV-2, PPE equipment is a lifeline (https://ibn.fm/TrStJ). When used appropriately, it considerably reduces the risk of viral transmission, so it has become a fundamental component of infection prevention and control measures.
But, not all PPE is created equal. As the virus spread around the country, an immediate and drastic need for personal protective equipment exploded. This soaring demand for PPE was quickly accompanied by the PPE-related fraud, which called for an increase in federal scrutiny to combat the fraudulent attempts.
PPE fraud involves a broad range of fraudulent activities, from the selling of counterfeit or faulty testing kits, surgical gowns, gloves, facial masks and cleaning products to making false or misleading claims about the effectiveness of the product. Some fraudsters offer to provide respiratory masks or medical devices never intended to be delivered, or they deliver those of lesser quality than advertised. PPE equipment that is not working as advertised means that it does not function or does not provide the necessary protection (https://ibn.fm/PMNGZ). That is why it is critical to secure a trusted supplier of personal protection equipment.
As a trusted supplier of FDA-approved COVID-19 rapid antibody test kits and PPE equipment, UME stands out in this environment where buyers can potentially fall prey to those selling counterfeit or faulty equipment. In this pandemic where adequate PPE equipment is critical for saving lives, UME is committed to differentiating itself as a premier provider of vital PPE products, delivering affordable and dependable PPE and other crucial medical supplies and durable medical equipment. The company partners with manufacturers worldwide to provide lifesaving PPE, including nitrile gloves, protective gowns, face shields and more. Its N-95 and KN-95 protective masks— considered to provide the highest level of protection — are made in the USA.
The company was a third-party referral source for seniors and a medical supplier before the pandemic. As the demand for PPE equipment exploded due to the virus outbreak, the company was quick to pivot, shifting the business model and become the dependable source of everything PPE-related. UME has quickly grown into a trusted go-to provider of personal protective equipment, syringes and test kits offering a post-pandemic staple including hand sanitizers, gloves, face shields, masks, gowns and hoods (https://ibn.fm/LjKfL). In a world riddled with knockoffs, UME appears to offer reliability and peace of mind when it comes to equipment that saves lives.
