Gov Abbott is requiring more PPE & the prices are skyrocketing. My normal PPE vendor has managed to keep a trickle of PPE coming to me at normal prices. I started looking for additional sources today. The $0.40 disposable gown I normally wear is $4 - $7 on the open market. KN-95 went from $0.70 to $5.50. Clear face shields are $5.50. If I have to source on the open market & with the new requirements my cost per surgery is going from maybe $5 to $50! Damn.
