Advanced Medical Resources and Wound Care Resources cannot be liable for delays caused by a shortage of raw materials, manufacturing difficulties, delivery delays, labor disputes or any other issues beyond our control.
Backorders on our products are very rare. However, if a backorder occurs, the shipping cost for purchased products will be adjusted for the cost of the order actually shipped, and your previously back-ordered products will be sent to you at a nominal shipping charge.
Brand name products that have a chemical or biological effect on healing (primary dressings) will not be substituted without contacting the customer by phone or email. All dressings that are used to hold other dressings in place (secondary dressings like gauze, gauze sponges, gauze rolls, ABD pads, etc.) have been chosen by WCR for quality. Substitutions of these types of products will not affect the healing outcome of the wound. In rare cases a comparable product with a different brand name may be sent to fill the entire order in a timely manner.
