    • UPDATES FROM INCIDENT COMMAND:   
      • Remdesivir:  We gave our first patient Remdesivir over the weekend.  We are monitoring the patient closely for improvement and/or any side effects. 
      • Incident Command: The staff and physicians at MHP, the entire community and our state and local officials have done an amazing job managing and containing Covid-19 in Shelby County so far.  As a result, we are decreasing the frequency of our Incident Command meetings and the daily updates.  We will now convene on Mondays and Thursdays and will remain prepared to increase the frequency if we have a surge of patients or new developments require it.     
      • MHP Psychology walk-in crisis hours:  Beginning Monday, June 1st, MHP Psychology walk-in crisis hours will return to the normal schedule of 9:00am to 11:00am Monday through Friday. 
      • MHP Foundation:  Want to help?  Monetary gifts are greatly accepted.  Gifts can be made online at https://www.mymhp.org/gift or by contacting Angela Gill at agill@majorhospital.org.  Your gift may be used to purchase personal protection equipment, disinfecting supplies, testing/medical supplies, meals and other support for staff, assistance for patients with unmet Covid-19 related needs, and more. 
     
     
    • SUPPLY UPDATES:
      • We need your empty hand sanitizer bottles.  We are making our own hand sanitizer and need your empty containers in order to reuse.      
      • Do you have items that you would like to donate?  (hand sanitizer, masks, respirators, gloves, N95, bouffant caps, or gowns).  If so, please contact Angela Gill (agill@majorhospital.org)
      • Food Donations:  Several community supporters have called to offer to donate food for our staff and physicians.  Some are also doing it as a way to support those restaurants who are struggling to stay afloat while they are only open for carryout.  We are extremely grateful for all the community support and selfless gestures.  If you would like to find out more information, please contact Angela Gill (agill@majorhospital.org).
