As COVID-19 spreads across the United States, hospitals are running out of masks, gowns and eye protection. New supplies aren’t being made fast enough to keep up with demand, and stockpiles seem insufficient. We’re seeing some massive companies like Tesla, Dyson, Ford and GM step in, show heart and are stopping their normal production to help with the production and supply of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), Respirators, ventilators, masks and other PPE. All in the united goal of helping get them to the healthcare professionals that need them most, on the front lines of this pandemic. We, at OneStaff Medical, are no exception.


We, at OneStaff Medical, are no exception.

In times like these, we all need to rise up to lift others. With that mindset, we’ve seen our recruiters take it upon themselves to help, by sewing masks for their travelers. Jae Laska, a Senior Recruiter in our Nursing Division had this to say; “As a recruiter it's my job to make sure the professionals I'm working with are safe no matter where there are. When I saw the call to arms from facilities asking for masks, I knew it was something I had to do. I've never sewn anything that didn't have sequins and glitter on it, so loud and proud fabric was the next best thing!”

Those actions also inspired our philanthropy committee, Rise & Kind, to also step up and donate money for a local seamstress to make a much larger volume of masks for our hardworking travelers. We are committed to supporting our travelers 100% and making sure they are supplied with the proper protection needed for them to do their jobs to their best ability. If you have any questions about COVID-19 and our dedication to our travelers through it all please visit our FAQ page and browse current crisis jobs across the country.
