Exclamation Business and the Current Crisis

How has the current crisis affected your business? Whether you are an employee, manager, CEO, owner, self employed/independent cintractor, whatever... I'd like to know how this situation has affected you?

What problems has it created for your ability to do what you do?

What has been your response? What are you currently doing? Are you in a holding pattern, wait and see? Delaying accounts payable? Seeing delays on accounts receivable? Are you pulling down credit lines to provide peace of mind about payroll and overhead? Worried about running out of cash or capital?

I'm trying to get a feel for how this is affecting the economy, in your area. Any info is appreciated and yes I may have some solutions.

Re: Business and the Current Crisis

Got a gig in poultry processing. We’re not shutting down (yet). The nation has to eat. Today there was a company wide meeting during our lunch break. They provided pulled pork sandwiches. Reminded me of the episode of SLIDERS when the crew goes to an eating establishment. They were handed a sandwich (I think) in a sanitary plastic bag. Anyway...

We learned that an employee’s daughter contracted the virus. The daughter has been quarantined. But the rumor is that the whole family contracted the virus. So, the HR rep was like, “I Don’t believe rumors.”

It was mentioned that it is a possibility that they will take our temperatures as we enter work.

Kinda feel like we’re Jews building bombs for the enemy...

I’m an office nurse. So essential business. We have to take our temperatures upon arrival, screening which patients may be seen as we are not acute care.they are talking about doing telemedicine which would, therefore ,decrease the staff needed.should be interesting.

Re: Business and the Current Crisis

Not one thing has changed. On the other hand I have sold more gym equipment than I have ever sold in my life. Post one set of dumbbells and get 50 hits within minutes. All the gym closings due to the scamdemic has a huge amount of lifters building home gyms. I got a good analogy about that I might share later with all three of us later in this forum.

Are you getting your equipment from a supier? Or from gymns having fire sales? I missed out a couple years ago, the MMA gymn I was attending went bellyup. The owners sold eberything to their buddies before the landlord could lock the doors.

LOTS of weights, bars, machines, etc.

Tell me more about telemedicine. How does that work?

Doctor's appointment via Skype? That might be an interesting business model but I don't see how to get around palpating patients, ENT exams, blood work, etc?

Patients order a home lab kit, initial consult via Skype with RN or Physician's Assistant, do lab work at home, clinic sends medical courier to pick up samples etc. Then folliw up consult with Dr via Skype, e-prescription sent to pharmacy of choice, pharmacy courier delivers meds to patient.

So you would need a company that does medical courier work, an app for phone or laptop to tie in with Skype-like capabilities, and a company that makes home lab kits... Problem is those lab kits would have to be idiot proof. Phlebotomy is basically a trade not a hobby....

Robot physician's assistant/technician, goes to patient's house, does lab work, exam, immediate upload to Dr via wifi-cell network. Could even be done in real time with Dr at the controls. A medical drone, basically.

I need to pitch this to some people I know. Anybody want to invest in something like this? Could probably be the wave of the future...

Re: Business and the Current Crisis

Alternatively, a home lab kit where all the patient has to do is some super basic thing like spit in petri dish, stick finger in sensor, hold for 5 minutes, lab system does analysis and uploads to your physician's office computer. Such a system would be great for rich germophobes...
