>Hi, Jacqui....
>Tell me about yourself. What grade level are you?
>You asked about plaster gauze. I went down in person to the local hospital
>and talked "cold turkey" with the supply purchaser in the office dept. Much
>better to ask in person than on the phone. They're less likely to turn you
>down. She orders extra for "the hospital" and when it comes in, I reimburse
>hospital by check. My district warehouse reimburses me. I tend to order
>about $200 to $300 at a time to last me for a yr. or so. It came in last
>year at $5.80 a box of a doz. rolls (each 3" high). If I were to buy it at
>California Medical Supply, it would cost me $38 for the SAME box/doz.
>I drive to the hospital and pick it up so there's no delivery expense. It's
>no hassle for them.
>I also picked up a neat tip from another teacher just last week. She says
>the hospital pharmacy usually takes out the plastic droppers from med.
>bottles and puts something else in their place...or something like that.
>Anyway, she says you can get free droppers by asking at a hospital
>pharmacy. I need to check this tip out...thanks 4 reminding me.
