At long-term care homes across Canada, personal protective equipment (PPE) is in short supply. In a video provided by one home in Western Canada, which asked to remain anonymous, the shelves are empty where the essential tools to protect nursing home staff and residents — gloves and masks — should be stored. Yet, long-term care homes in need have been getting emails offering those very supplies. The catch? Often, they are being offered at a major markup.
