Private LTC sites that are not affiliated with Island Health – will not be able to access suture kits through this process, and will need to use their own procurement processes to access supplies. We have posted a Suture Kit Supply list on the LTCI website along with the contact information for the Territory Rep for the Stevens Company, who assisted the LTC with procurement of suture kit supplies in April 2020.
Please be aware that the LTCI is no longer able to provide suture kit supplies to LTC sites, but feel free to contact the LTCI to problem-solve any procurement issues that may arise at your site.
Information for suture kit supplies can be found here
Suture kits available for owned and operated and affiliate sites from Island Health
