Patients leaving the hospital may need multiple services and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) for their recovery at home. DME is usually prescribed by a doctor or recommended by other health care professionals for patients with chronic diseases or disabilities which limit their activities. It may also be needed for patients leaving acute or rehabilitation hospitals or skilled nursing facilities and require continued assistance at home.
However, DME for home use is not limited to individuals with chronic conditions. For example, patients who are working to regain the use of disabled limbs or build up strength after trauma or disease can continue their prescribed therapy at home and return to a more normal lifestyle.We work with your doctor who supervises the medical management of the home care patient. We coordinate the service and maintenance of the DME - as well as any other doctor prescribed products and services, such as rehabilitation services and respiratory care products and equipment.
Our staff deliver and set up the prescribed equipment in your home, communicate regularly with the prescribing doctor and perform follow-up visits as needed. Training in the use of the equipment is coordinated by our healthcare professionals and includes detailed written instructions and follow-up.
