While some practices have laid off employees, others have been fortunate enough to be able to pay their staff.  Whichever route you took, there are many ways you can help your practice during these difficult times.

Cut unneeded expenses

  • This differs per practice, but some examples are: stopping all auto-ships and taking the time to check out other vendors to compare prices for items such as syringes, gauze, other supplies and more. For those who have monthly parking fees, inquire to see if the building will allow you not to pay the for the months you are closed.
