Coronavirus/COVID-19

How You Can Help

Mid Coast Hospital is working to ensure that our patients and employees are kept as safe and protected as possible from the COVID-19 virus. Community members have asked us what they can do to help. Please find key ways to help listed below. Mid Coast Hospital is very grateful for any level of assistance you can provide, and we are so appreciative of the community's support.

Physical Distancing

Social or physical distancing is a measure recommended by the Center for Disease Control to stop the spread of COVID-19. Social distancing techniques have also been used in the past during other virus outbreaks.

In the case of COVID-19, social distancing means avoiding crowds, and making sure to maintain at least six feet of physical distance between you and other people. In our community, we have seen social distancing implemented through school closures, event cancellations, and many people being told to work from home.

Social distancing strategies have been put in place to slow the transmission of COVID-19 or “flatten the curve.” They will help slow down the spread of the disease and allow the health care system to more readily care for patients over time.

Medical Supply Donations

As consistent with healthcare organizations across the nation, Mid Coast Hospital is preparing for shortages of some medical supplies, including personal protective equipment, during this outbreak of COVID-19.

In the event that the supply shortages continue to drop, we are proactively pursuing untraditional means and asking for the community’s assistance. We are currently asking for donations of new and unused:

  • N95 Masks (usually made by 3M or Kimberly Clark but we will accept any brand)
  • Paper masks (with ties or elastic)
  • Paper protective gowns
  • Protective glasses/goggles (can be previously used)
  • Nitrile gloves

Medical supplies donations are now being centrally coordinated through MaineHealth. This will help direct resources appropriately and make sure your donation is best utilized. Please visit https://mainehealth.org/donate to complete a brief form, and someone will contact you directly regarding drop off locations.

Childcare Support

We are developing a directory of individuals who may be willing and able to provide in-home supervision for children of healthcare workers who must continue to work during this challenging time.
