When do the materials expire?
Although most of the components have a 3-5 year shelf life, some products, such as Dermabond, have a shorter expiration period. Our commitment is to provide you with materials that expire no sooner than 12 months from your date of purchase. Most supplies will far exceed this expiration period.
Where are the materials purchased from?
All components of Provider Prepared Laceration Repair Kits are purchased from reputable US-based companies, such as Ethicon, Covidien, 3M, Halyard, Moore Medical, Mar-Med Co., etc.
Can anyone purchase these products?
The FDA requires a medical device be "sold by or on the order of a physician." The business entity, Provider Prepared, is selling the products on this website.
Some products, like an empty medical bag, a SAM splint, or Gift Card, is not a medical device and dos not require a medical license or a prescription signed by a medical provider holding one.
However, most of the products are or contain medical devices. A licensed medical provider (physician, podiatrist, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, dentist, veterinarian) may purchase these devices under their own license. A customer without a prescribing medical license (nurse, EMT, general public) may purchase these medical devices after obtaining a prescription (linked on every product page requiring one) signed by a prescribing, licensed medical provider.
