When you need medical equipment in your home, it is important that you understand how to properly use it. Most of the time, the company that sells the equipment will set it up in your home and show you have to use it as well. When they deliver the equipment, be sure to ask any questions you have so you understand the equipment and how to properly use it.
If you need medical supplies but can not get out to get them, you can often get a medical supply company to either deliver them to your door, or they might just ship the supplies to you via mail or a postal service. Let them know what you need and the quantity that you need. They will make the arrangements to get it to you as quickly as possible. If you use the same supplies every month, you might want to set up an automatic delivery each month so you don't have to keep calling month after month.
Oxygen Supplies and Tanks
Oxygen tanks are one of the things that you will need to have delivered to your home as you need them. The tanks are heavy and need to be handled carefully so the supplier delivers them and sets the tanks up where you need them. The tanks should be secured in place once they are set up so they can not be knocked over and damaged. Depending on the size tanks you need, it can be easy or more tricky to secure them but in most cases, a short chain around them and anchored to the wall is enough to keep them standing upright.
Beds and Other Equipment
If you need a medical or hospital bed for someone in your home, s medical supply company can bring one out and set it up for you. They look large and heavy but they can be broken down into several small sections to make them easier to move. Along with beds, you can get portable potty seats, wheelchairs, and walkers from your medical supply company if you need them. It is very little they can get for you if you need it. Just call and talk to them about your needs.
In some areas, you can even get your prescriptions delivered to your home. Normally this is offered through the pharmacy, not through a third party. Some items might not be able to be delivered as they are controlled drugs that only go to the person they are prescribed too. Ask your pharmacy if they offer this service.
