Letter: Generous gift highlights need for nurses' gear
To the editor:
The nurses of Berkshire Medical Center have a guardian angel!
The supply of N95 masks is dangerously low, and our RNs are at risk when they provide care without appropriate personal protective equipment.
Allen Harris, head of Berkshire Money Management, bought N95 masks and delivered them Saturday.
We are so very grateful to BMM and Mr. Harris for their generosity and caring!
We appeal to anyone in the community who has N95 masks to please donate them to the RNs and care providers at BMC.
With immeasurable appreciation,
Ruth O'Hearn, RN,
The writer is a member of the Massachusetts Nurses Association at Berkshire Medical Center.
