Patients coming home from the hospital feel the same excitement that all of us have when pulling into the driveway after a long road-trip. However, some patients are missing one of the elements that is such an important part of what our home means: that missing element is comfort. Many times the transition from high quality hospital care back home leaves something missing.
At Causey's Pharmacy we put the comfort back into your home with the assistance of our home health care department. We work closely with the hospital's discharge planner along with your doctor to provide the ultimate care package for you. Instead of your favorite lazy-boy recliner, perhaps a clinical recliner that offers prolonged seating comfort along with therapeutic adjustments will speed up recovery rates. We can equip your home with all the support equipment and teach you, your family and friends all they need to know about making the transition that much easier.
Part of the infamous quote about "Home, sweet home" is sometimes forgotten. Let Causey's help you to remember exactly why home is so sweet. It's not just because it is home, but because it is the place "the heart can rest."
What is Home Medical Equipment?
Home Medical Equipment (HME) is any equipment that provides therapeutic benefits or enables the beneficiary to perform certain tasks that he or she is unable to undertake otherwise due to certain medical conditions and or illnesses. HME includes equipment such as wheelchairs, hospital beds, traction equipment, canes, crutches, walkers, kidney machines, ventilators, oxygen and other medically needed items. HME is considered to be equipment that can withstand repeated use and is primarily and customarily used to serve a medical purpose. It is generally not useful to a person in the absence of an illness or injury and is appropriate for use in the home. There are items, although durable in nature, which may fall into other coverage categories such as braces, prosthetic devices, artificial arms, legs, and eyes.
