Near When You Need Them: Hacking the Disposable Tourniquets Supply Chain
Vendor Spotlight™ Featuring Nick Fruge
What is "nearshoring" and how can it solve many of your most pressing healthcare supply chain issues? On this Power Supply Vendor Spotlight™ we highlight Caresfield, an organization that began serving in the niche of healthcare labels, but eventually grew into disposable tourniquets, patient ID bands, cohesive bandages and specimen collection products. Nick Fruge, VP of Operations joins Justin Poulin for this Vendor Spotlight™ to talk about this US based manufacturer which was the first to launch a tourniquet line with a variety of bright colors to reduce the risk of leave-on accidents and serves the healthcare industry with heart. The need for manufacturing sustainability in healthcare was a hard lesson we all learned during the pandemic, as many struggled to manage the high volume of backorders facing our hospitals. Tune in to hear about a company who is working to be "near" when you need them!
